Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition in the hand and wrist caused by excessive pressure on the median nerve in the wrist. Compression of the nerve typically causes numbness and tingling in the thumb, index finger, middle finger, and ring finger. Pain in the hand and wrist may also occur. Carpal tunnel release is a surgical procedure that reduces the pressure on the median nerve to alleviate symptoms.
