While we love this "carpal tunnel surgery" picture from Danny Quirk Artwork we want to reassure you that when we do carpal tunnel surgery the incision is nowhere near this size! Generally the incision size for endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery is 1cm in length (placed at the wrist) and for open carpal tunnel surgery the incision size is 2cm in length (placed on the "heel" of the hand, over the carpal tunnel ligament.

The more you look, the more hand differences you will find! Members of the Silva family living In Aguas Claras, a town on the outskirts of the capital of Brasilia, were born with an extra digit on each hand as a result of a genetic condition known as polydactyly. The 14 members of the family spanning four generations embrace their physical difference with pride.

There are lots of reasons that we offer wide awake hand surgery (WAHS), and the good news is that WAHS is not linked to memory loss and dementia. WAHS is hand surgery performed under local anaesthetic, which allows individuals to avoid the possible negative cognitive effects of anaesthetic medications that are described in this link:

http://www.smh.com.au/national/health/surgery-linked-to-memory-loss-and-dementia-20140508-zr6vq.html

Wide awake hand surgery can be performed for many common hand conditions including carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, Dupuytren's contracture and de Quervain's tenosynovitis (among others).
