Treating Cubital Tunnel Release at the Elbow in Plano, Frisco, McKinney and AllenOverview Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

Cubital Tunnel Release at the Elbow, also known as ulnar neuropathy, occurs when the ulnar nerve in the arm becomes compressed or irritated. This nerve travels from the neck down through the elbow, the area often referred to as the funny boneĀ, into the hand. When compressed or irritated by increased pressure to the area it can cause severe pain, numbness, tingling, and muscle weakness in the hands and arms. You are more likely to develop this condition when you lean on your elbow repeatedly on a hard surface such as the table, or when your elbow is bent for sustained periods of time such as sleeping with your elbow bent under your pillow.

What is it?

Cubital tunnel release, is the outpatient procedure used to treat the cubital tunnel syndrome by alleviating the compression on the ulnar nerve. This procedure is recommended when more conservative treatments fail.
