Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Carpal tunnel syndrome is the result of pressure on the median nerve in the wrist. This nerve and several tendons run through the forearm and hand, and pass through a space called the carpal tunnel. Swelling of the carpal tunnel or anything else that may make the tunnel smaller is what causes symptoms; they can include tingling, weakness, pain and/or numbness. Illness, repeating certain motions and even pregnancy can cause carpal tunnel syndrome.
Dr. Yashar will perform a physical exam as well a few in office tests to determine if carpal tunnel syndrome is the source of your pain and discomfort. Conservative methods such as medication and activity modification may be an option; however for those whose symptoms affect their ability to work or perform regular tasks, surgery may be the best option.
For carpal tunnel surgery, a procedure called carpal tunnel release may be performed.

- I realized that Dr. Yashar genuinely cares to cure his patient with or without money, which makes him an exceptional doctor in a city that most physicians don't even listen to their patients, and all they do is to collect $ and ignore patients. At Dr. Yashar office I dealt with Amber and Michael who has been a credit to their profession and went above and beyond patient satisfaction.
