Micro-invasive Carpal Tunnel Treatment at Penn Highlands Healthcare

A New Way to Treat Carpal Tunnel Syndrome for Faster Recovery.

Micro-invasive Carpal Tunnel Release (CTR) with the SX-One MicroKnife®

The SX-One MicroKnife is a low-profile, safe, and effective instrument that allows your doctor to perform carpal tunnel release in a matter of minutes. When combined with ultrasound visualization, the procedure requires only a very small (4-5 mm) wrist incision.

Significant benefits of the SX-One MicroKnife

  • Performed in a procedure room or office setting
  • Can be performed using local anesthesia
  • Small wrist incision is typically closed without stitches
  • Reduces or eliminates the need for pain medication
  • Restorative physical therapy is typically not required—saving you time and money
  • Immediate motion in the hand for rapid recovery
  • Return to normal activity in a few days, not months

After the procedure, you’ll be able to resume activities as tolerated—most patients can return to work and the activities they love within 3-6 days.
