Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

20 Cubital Tunnel Syndrome 1
When your ring and little fingers feel numb or tingly, or if you notice some decreased or abnormal sensation in your fingers or hands, it may be Cubital Tunnel Syndrome. It may even affect your sleep. Compression of the ulnar nerve at the elbow causes the symptoms. Besides supplying most muscles in hand, the ulnar nerve also sensation to little and half of the ring fingers. Specific points along the path between the neck and the hand may cause stretching or compression of the Ulnar nerve.

s11 Cubital Tunnel Syndrome 5 During the healing process, you may experience swelling, numbness, and discomfort that can be controlled with medication. You will receive specific post-operative instructions from Dr Khan. Initial healing may take 7 – 10 days. In a week or two, our clinic will remove the dressings from the surgery. When your hand is covered in a bandage and you are in pain, you should not drive. Fortunately, the surgery is a good pain management method. The weakness that results from muscle wasting is permanent, but surgery may prevent further muscle atrophy.
