We provide a variety of quick and easy treatments to help combat arthritis; these include splints and the use of oral pain killers. Where these are not effective, the next step can be to inject steroid into the affected joint. These can be administered on the day of your first consultation.
Carpal tunnel syndrome in its mildest form may be treated with a removable splint. Where the condition is more severe it will be necessary to release the pressure on the nerve with a short operation.
This is done either by using a sharp needle to sever the tissue (needle fasciotomy) or by using a powerful enzyme (Xiapex) to dissolve small sections of tissue without directly removing it.
This treatment involves removing the cyst as well as part of the involved joint capsule or tendon sheath, which is considered the root of the ganglion.
Through a small cut at the elbow, the affected muscles are released slightly from underlying bone. Inflammatory tissue is removed and the bone is abraded surgically. After surgery, a soft, supportive bandage is worn for a few days.
This is an awake day-case (local anaesthetic) operation and patients can return to normal activities soon after treatment. The operation makes a small cut in the palm and opens up the narrow tunnel at the base of the finger so that the tendon no longer rubs on it.
