Dr. Mark Williams Treats Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Patients Using Ultrasound Guidance

Feb 20th, 2020

Dr. Mark Williams’ orthopedic surgery practice in Bloomsburg, PA, has now provided more than 15 patients fast-healing relief from carpal tunnel syndrome with carpal tunnel release (CTR) using the SX-One MicroKnife® and ultrasound guidance.

“It’s wonderful to be able to get patients back to work as quickly as possible, especially for those who need the income and do not have vacation time to cover a lengthy rehabilitation”

CTR using ultrasound guidance is performed using local anesthesia and a small incision (<5mm) that is typically closed with adhesive strips or a bandage. Most patients are able to return to normal activities in 3-6 days. 

“These patients were prescribed only Tylenol® for pain management,” says Williams. 

Dr. Williams patients have been delighted with the rapid recovery they’ve experienced.

“One of my patients was a little reluctant and joked that he’d rather I just gave him a pill,” said Dr. Williams. “In fact, this man went golfing the very next day and came back a month later for CTR on his other hand.”

Mark Williams, D.O., treats patients at a multi-specialty practice in central Pennsylvania, with easy access right off Interstate 80.  His practice includes family care, orthopedics, on-site diagnostics, a surgery center, and a daycare facility.
