Did you know that plastic surgeons can perform hand surgery? Surgery can be used to treat a variety of ailments, including carpal tunnel syndrome.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, carpal tunnel syndrome is caused by pressure to the median nerve in the wrist. This condition can cause pain, tingling, numbness and weakness.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons states that carpal tunnel syndrome can develop because of overuse, fluid retention during pregnancy, rheumatoid arthritis or because of an injury to the nerve.
