Bluegrass Orthopaedics in Lexington, Kentucky, is committed to providing our Lexington and Central Kentucky patients with top-notch options to restore their strength, function, and active lifestyles. Our dedication drives us to continually offer the latest advancements in orthopedic care. At Bluegrass Orthopaedics, Dr. Victor Marwin, a fellowship-trained hand and upper extremity surgeon, specializes in minimally invasive procedures that provide same-day relief for one of the most common orthopedic conditions—carpal tunnel syndrome.

Carpal tunnel syndrome can arise from various causes but is generally marked by the compression of the median nerve in the wrist and hand. This nerve travels through a narrow passage in the wrist known as the carpal tunnel. When this tunnel becomes constricted or the surrounding tendons swell, it places pressure on the nerve, leading to a variety of symptoms.

Symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome may include:

  • Pain or a tingling sensation from the hand up to the arm
  • Numbness, tingling, & pain in the hand and fingers, which may be worse at night
  • Weakness in the hand & difficulty gripping and holding objects

If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, consider scheduling a consultation with Dr. Marwin at Bluegrass Orthopaedics in Lexington to explore your treatment options.
