A Hand Surgeon’s Guide To Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment in Singapore (2020)

A Hand Surgeon’s Guide To Carpal Tunnel Syndrome Treatment in Singapore (2020)

I am Dr Jonathan Lee, the surgeon at Dr Jonathan Lee Hand, Wrist and Upper Limb Surgery Clinic.

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is one of the most common conditions I see in my practice as a hand surgeon – it is estimated that 5% of Singaporeans will experience CTS at some point in their lives. But what is CTS exactly? How do you know if you have a suspected case of CTS?

I have decided to put together this guide to help you find out if CTS may be the cause of your wrist issues and what you can do about it.

(Make sure you are maintaining a good hand posture while reading this article. I don't want to be the cause of your CTS woes.)
