Wide-Awake Hand Surgery
Wide-awake hand surgery is a technique used to treat many common hand conditions, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger and others. This technique allows the surgery to be performed without the use of any general anesthesia, sedation or a tourniquet.
This technique can be used for various procedures, such as: carpal tunnel and cubital tunnel release, tendon repair, ligament repair, fracture repair, joint fusions, thumb arthritis surgery and trigger finger release.
