Recovery in Days, not Months. OrthoIdaho now offers a micro-invasive treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal Tunnel Release Is Available In SE Idaho
There is now a much less invasive treatment for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome using the SX-One MicroKnife®.
There are several advantages of performing Carpal Tunnel Release using Ultrasound-Guidance and the SX-One MicroKnife® over traditional Carpal Tunnel Release surgery.
Most patients can return to normal activity in 3 to 6 days versus several weeks to months with traditional surgery. The procedure is performed in an office setting under local anesthesia, and the small wrist incision is typically closed without sutures.
You will experience immediate motion in the hand for rapid recovery. Postoperative therapy is typically not required and pain is minimal so opioids can be avoided.

What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a common condition that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and arm.
The condition occurs when one of the major nerves in the hand—the median nerve—is compressed as it travels through the wrist. The median nerve controls movement in the thumb and feeling in the thumb and first three fingers. It runs down the arm and forearm, passes through the carpal tunnel at the wrist, and goes into the hand.
- Numbness, tingling, burning, and pain in the thumb, index, middle, and ring fingers
- Occasional shock-like sensations that radiate to the same fingers
- Pain or tingling that may travel up the forearm toward the shoulder
- Weakness in the hand
