MANOS CTR Procedure > Overview
MANOS CTR (Carpal Tunnel Release) System
Carpal tunnel release surgery with MANOS CTR™ is the least invasive surgical option. Through a 2mm incision, your surgeon places the MANOS CTR system into the carpal tunnel under ultrasound and/or nerve stimulation guidance. The MANOS CTR system is then deployed and used to divide the transverse carpal ligament. Due to the small incision, general anesthesia, a tourniquet, and stitches are often not required.
After the procedure, two small band-aids are used to cover the surgical access points. Patients treated with MANOS CTR typically recover quickly, with some patients returning to work within a week of surgery. Postoperative care is limited and generally does not include splinting or physical therapy.
