Are you looking for a Carpal Tunnel Surgeon in NC?

Carpal tunnel release is a time-tested method that relieves the painful symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome...for good.

If you have tried splinting, bracing, therapy, anti-inflammatory medicine, or even injections and still have pain, contact Dr. Nelson's team today.

In 2022 Dr. Johnny T. Nelson was the first orthopaedic surgeon in the Raleigh-Durham area to perform micro-invasive ultrasound-guided carpal tunnel release with the Sonex Ultraguide CTR device. He performs over 300 of these procedures every year, lectures at international meetings on this new technique and teaches other surgeons about it.

Ultrasound-guided carpal tunnel release relieves all of the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome using only a very small poke incision at the level of the wrist. Dr. Nelson performs this procedure without anesthesia, without a painful tourniquet, and does not require sutures or post-operative therapy. Most importantly, for patients suffering from carpal tunnel in both hands, Dr. Nelson is an expert in performing the procedure on both sides simultaneously.

For a free carpal tunnel symptom screening over the phone, call the Bone & IMG 1039Joint Surgery Clinic at 919-872-5296, or make a visit for a consultation with Dr. Nelson, the premier Carpal Tunnel Surgeon in NC.
