The October 16, 2022 scanning open house at the bone and joint surgery clinic with Dr. Johnny T. Nelson was a huge success!
The lobby of the bone and joint surgery clinic was filled with attendees, some of whom drove several hours for the event, to educate themselves about carpal tunnel syndrome and for the opportunity for a free one-on-one consultation with Dr. Nelson.
Many were also very curious to learn about ultrasound-guided carpal tunnel release, new technology being offered by Dr. Nelson. This ultra–minimally invasive technique of relieving carpal tunnel symptoms is changing the way that carpal tunnel syndrome is treated.
Dr. Nelson, one of the only orthopedic surgeons in the Raleigh Durham area to utilize in office ultrasound, also used ultrasound to confirm the diagnosis for many patients. This was a special teaching and learning opportunity, Dr. Nelson was able to teach each attendee about the anatomy of the carpal tunnel, the surrounding tendons and blood vessels, and signs on ultrasound that the carpal tunnel nerve may be abnormal.
If you or someone you know or love has carpal tunnel syndrome, and you are not able to attend the scanning open house, call 919-872-5296 to schedule visit with Dr. Johnny T. Nelson.
