Common Types Of Hand Surgery The types of hand surgery that can help treat hand pain include: Carpal Tunnel Release: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is a conditon in which a person experiences numbness and tngling sensatons in the fngers and thumb. The main reason behind this conditon is excessive pressure on the median nerve. Surgery can relieve the pain as it releases pressure on the nerve by splitng the carpal tunnel ligament while the patents hand is under the efect of local anesthetcs. Dupuytrens Contracture Fasciectomy: Dupuytrens Contracture arises when a knot of tssue forms under the skin of the palm. The conditon can be relatvely painless during the inital stages but can result in skin nodules that pull the tendons of the fngers tght causing the fngers to curl inward. In the surgical procedure these knoty tssues are removed to release the extra pressure on the fngers. Copyright © 2014 Fitzmaurice Hand Institute. All Rights Reserved.
