Carpal Tunnel Release


Carpal tunnel release is carried out within the community surgical setting. Practitioners offering a carpal tunnel release service in the community require a more specialised operating environment (air changes) and they may chose to involve a hospital-based mentor.

The ASPC has commenced a hand surgery audit of Patient-Recorded Outcome Measures (PROM). If you are a GP who offers a community Carpal Tunnel Release service, please consider contributing your data to our national audit. Click on the links below to find out more.
