Wave goodbye to Cubital Tunnel Syndrome's pesky symptoms with a Cubital Tunnel Release! This 30-45 minute outpatient procedure, performed under general anesthesia, decompresses the pinched ulnar nerve, offering swift relief from finger pain, numbness, and weakness. A skilled surgeon makes a small elbow incision, moves muscles and tendons, and cuts the ulnar collateral ligament. Afterward, you'll wear a comfy soft dressing and head home with a friend or family member. Don't let that "falling asleep" sensation, tingling, or weakness hold you back – book an appointment for an accurate diagnosis and tailored treatment plan.
