Just to reassure you, we will not share your details with anyone outside of The Westbourne Centre.


At The Westbourne Centre your diagnosis of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome will be treated quickly and efficiently, as we understand it's not only painful but prohibitive to your daily life.

The carpal tunnel is a narrow passageway of ligaments and bone at the base of the hand, and houses the medien nerve and tendon.  The pain occurs when the medien nerve becomes squeezed or compressed at the wrist.  

Our orthopaedic consultants work closely with a consultant neurophysicist who is able to use nerve conduction techniques to confirm the carpal tunnel syndrome diagnosis.

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is treated in our state-of-the-art operating room as a day procedure.  You will have a local anaesthetic and analgesic which ensures you do not feel any pain yet are able to recover quickly from the procedure and be on your way home to recouperate.
