Carpal Tunnel Surgery Closure

The closure is quick. I had only 5 stitches for each surgery. The ink prep lines and doctor’s initials are not washed off. A sterilized bandage is placed over the closed incision. You will sit up slowly, take a few minutes for your blood pressure to regulate, and begin to move your fingers. A nurse or surgeon’s assistant will take your blood pressure before you leave, and that’s it!

In total, the carpal tunnel surgery takes only about 15-30 minutes, from start to finish.
