Congratulations to Dr. Brett J. Kindle of Gulf Breeze, Florida, for providing more than 400 patients fast-healing relief from carpal tunnel syndrome with UltraGuideCTR™ to perform carpal tunnel release (CTR) with real-time ultrasound guidance.
Most patients who undergo carpal tunnel release with ultrasound guidance are able to return to normal activities in 3–6 days.
The procedure is performed using local anesthesia and a small incision which is typically closed without sutures.
In Dr. Kindle’s experience, the fast recovery associated with CTR using ultrasound guidance has been a game-changer.
“The vast majority of patients that come in for the procedure are here because they don’t want to be restricted, out of work, or missing their normal activities for a prolonged period of time,” he says.
An Immediate Difference in 4 Days
“At the 4-day post-op visit the incision is typically healed. We then clear patients to resume activity without restrictions,” says Dr. Kindle. “The overwhelming majority of patients have managed their post-op pain with over-the-counter medication, such as Tylenol®,” he says.
