What Is Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery? Carpal tunnel release is a surgery that’s used to treat and potentially heal the painful condition known as carpal tunnel syndrome.
Carpal tunnel syndrome can be caused by trauma, such as a sprain or fracture, or repetitive use of a vibrating tool. It's also associated with pregnancy, diabetes, thyroid disease, and rheumatoid arthritis.
