Why do you want a Cubital Tunnel Doctor in Houston?
The second most common peripheral nerve entrapment syndrome in the human body is cubital tunnel syndrome. It currently affects around 30 people per 100,000 population. Research has shown that cubital tunnel syndrome is more prevalent in older individuals and males, and for those who bend their elbows frequently (when pulling, reaching, or lifting), lean on their elbows a lot, or has an injury in that location. Bone spurs, arthritis, and elbow fractures or dislocations can also cause cubital tunnel syndrome.
The symptoms of cubital tunnel syndrome affect individuals in a number of ways. Primarily, they can reduce an individual’s ability to perform work duties and physical activity. As well as the general discomfort the symptoms provide, patients also report being woken up at night due to hand pain and numbness. If the nerve is very compressed or has been compressed for awhile, muscle wasting in the hand can occur which cannot be fixed. By performing cubital tunnel surgery, we can alleviate most, if not all, of these symptoms for you so you can live your life.
