Therapy of nerve compression syndromes in our hand surgical center in Munich

Nerve compression syndromes can appear at different locations of the hand, the lower arm and elbow.

Typical symptoms are:

  • „Pins and needles” feeling
  • Numbness
  • Weakness of the hand

In general one major nerve, which supplies the hand or the lower arm, becomes compressed due to different reasons. The result is pain, loss of feeling and weakness of the initial supplied area. Beside the clinical examination, a neurological consultation with measurement of the nerve conduction velocity is needed before initiating any therapy. The surgical release of the nerve is accomplished with a small incision in a short operation and often leads to immediate improvement of the symptoms.

We treat the following nerve compression syndromes and many more:

  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Ulnar cubital tunnel syndrome
  • Guyon’s canal syndrome / Ulnar tunnel syndrome
  • Anterior interosseus syndrome / Kiloh-Nevin-syndrome
  • Pronator-teres-syndrome
  • Posterior interosseus nerve syndrome / Supinator entrapment syndrome
  • Cheiralgia paresthetica/ Wartenberg-syndrome

Before initiating any treatment it is important to consult one of our specialists personally during our office hours to conduct a thorough clinical examination. Our goal is to relieve your symptoms effectively and we will gladly inform you personally of all therapy options available.
