Benefits of Endoscopic Cubital Tunnel Release
Cubital tunnel syndrome is a condition brought on by increased pressure on the ulnar nerve at the elbow. As published on iont.org, endoscopic cubital tunnel release surgery has the following advantages when compared to traditional open cubital tunnel surgery:
- Smaller incision.
- Minimal muscle trauma.
- Faster recovery.
- Reduced postoperative pain.
- Minimal scar tissue formation.
- Lower risk of damage to adjacent nerves and blood vessels.
Endoscopic cubital tunnel release is a relatively safe procedure; however, as with any surgery, some risks and complications may occur, so make sure you consult with an upper extremity orthopedic specialist. Please call (305)227-4263 to request an appointment with Dr. Alejandro Badia.
