A new technology to help doctors treat carpal tunnel syndrome with minimal incision has been developed by doctors at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi, India.

A disposable endoscopic carpal tunnel release device will conduct the surgery through two small incisions with just two stitches, without the patient having to spend a long time in hospital.

Carpal tunnel syndrome results from the compression of the median nerve (the main nerve connected to all the muscles of the hand) by a ligament over the wrist joint.

The surgery takes less than ten minutes and the patient can be discharged in half an hour’s time without the need for a splint, as is required in a conventional surgery.

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that leads to numbness and severe pain in the wrist.
