Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery


Bilateral Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release


Left Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery vs. "Filet-of-Wrist" Surgery

I am a nurse and had problems of tingling and numbness in my hands for approximately 13 years. I tried several types of treatment on my own - braces, magnetic therapy, & exercises - none of these worked. I went to see Dr. Ichtertz in Sept. 2008 when I could no longer take a patient's pulse without my fingers going numb and unable to start an IV due to the numbness. I had my right (endoscopic) carpal tunnel release on Oct. 2, 2008 and the left on Oct. 30, 2008. Both were very successful! I have been amazed with the results! I play volleyball and I played just 2 weeks after each surgery! The exercise therapy is very important. Thanks Dr. Ichtertz!

Arm Pain from Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

   

 


Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release

 

My first carpal tunnel surgery was open release. I was in heavy bandages for about two weeks. It hurt a great deal for a long time. Could not eat with my right hand at all. It was very awkward. Couldn’t do much of anything for nearly three weeks.

When I had my second carpal tunnel surgery on my left hand by Dr. Ichtertz it was so different. I had bandages for a couple days and then it was more like bandaids! I could use my hand (carefully!) almost immediately. The difference was unbelievable! Wish I had found Dr. Ichtertz for the first surgery.

Dr. Ichtertz was also available to fix trigger finger—my left hand little finger. Cleared up right away. Thank you, Doctor.

I had symptoms since age 35, I am now 68. I have worked in offices in various positions my whole life. If I had known there would be this much improvement, I would not have waited so long to do it (ECTR). The thumb that had been hurting all along has not hurt since immediately after surgery months ago.

"I have been a hair stylist for 22 years. Working with my hands is very important. When I went back to work three days after surgery (ECTR), I was able to do everything. I highly recommend Dr. Ichtertz."

Several years ago while being towed behind a boat, I held on too tightly to the rope and severly injured my left wrist. My local doctor in Kansas recommended Dr. Dolf Ichtertz in Nebraska. As a baton twirler I need both wrists and because Dr. Ichtertz repaired both wrists-(ECTR)- I am able to twirl again! I was selected as the 2008 Ms. Senior Kansas and I will go to Atlantic City, New Jersey October 2008 for the Ms. Senior America Pageant. I will be twirling two batons, ribbons chain flag, two knives and a lighted baton to "Danger Zone" from Top Gun for the talent part. I am extremely grateful to Dr. Ichtertz for the excellent surgery he did on my wrist and making it possible for me to twirl at age 66!
