Carpal Tunnel Release, Including Ultrasound-Guided


While he performs hundreds of open and endoscopic carpal tunnel releases each year, in 2022 Dr. Johnny T. Nelson became the first orthopaedic surgeon in the Raleigh-Durham area to perform micro-invasive ultrasound-guided carpal tunnel release with the Sonex Ultraguide CTR device.

This technique relieves all of the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome but is performed through a very small poke incision at the level of the wrist. This procedure can be performed without anesthesia, tourniquet, or sutures and helps patients get back to work and activities very quickly.

Dr. Nelson hosts free, no-obligation open houses for patients to learn more about carpal tunnel syndrome and micro-invasive carpal tunnel release. For more information, please visit
