Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a common problem affecting thousands of people each year. It can cause significant pain and disability. CTS is generally associated with repetitive and forceful use of the hands. This causes the median nerve to become compressed. The patient may develop pain and numbness of the fingers. The longer the median nerve is compressed the more permanent the damage to the nerve fibers. Therefore, early treatment to relieve pressure on the nerve usually results in a better prognosis.

Balloon Carpal Tunnelplasty (BCTP) is a minimally invasive surgery that can preserve the transverse carpal tunnel ligament (TCL). This surgery requires a very small incision and a fast recovery. A balloon is inserted and inflated to see the anatomy to elevate and stretch the transverse carpal tunnel ligament (TCL). This allows room for the median nerve and relieves the pain.
