Carpal tunnel release is a procedure that helps relieve the pain that is felt in severe cases of carpal tunnel syndrome. Surgery is recommended when symptoms last for more than six months and other treatment methods have failed. The carpal ligament is cut to be able to eliminate pressure over the median nerve. This is a minor procedure that is performed in an outpatient clinic, but the patient needs to rest after the procedure and avoid using the affected hand.
