Botched Carpal Tunnel SurgeryA botched carpal tunnel surgery can result in serious and permanent injury to the patient. A carpal tunnel surgery should be a fairly routine procedure for an experienced surgeon. However, there are times when a surgical error or mistake may occur causing damage to a patient.
If during the surgery the median nerve was completely severed by the surgeon, this is a departure from good and accepted surgical standards…The area in the wrist where the median nerve enters the hand is a narrow tunnel, called the carpal tunnel. Swelling of the carpal tunnel can produce pressure on the nerve causing tingling, numbness, weakness, or pain in the fingers, hand, or lower arm. When this condition occurs, it is called carpal tunnel syndrome.
The most common cause of carpal tunnel syndrome is repetitive motions of the hand and wrist.
Open carpal tunnel surgery is performed to release pressure on the median nerve by cutting the transverse carpal ligament.
The surgeon has a duty to perform the surgery in accordance with generally accepted medical and surgical practices and technique. If during the surgery the median nerve was completely severed by the surgeon, this is a departure from good and accepted surgical standards, absent some exceptional circumstances such as a tumor being present.
