What is Carpal Tunnel Syndrome?

The Stratos Endoscopic Release System

The Stratos Endoscopic Release System is a highly advanced technology which provides access to the carpal tunnel through one small incision. The Stratos Endoscopic Release procedure requires no stitches and provides instantaneous relief from the pain, numbness and tingling associated with Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.

Minimally Invasive Stratos Endoscopic Release System

The technology behind the Stratos Endoscopic Release System was developed by a team of hand specialists including Dr. Pedro Loredo. In addition, he is one of a select few hand surgeons who possess the specialized training necessary to operate the system.

Additional advantages of the minimally-invasive Stratos Endoscopic Release System include:

  • A 98% surgery success rate
  • Minimal scarring
  • Same-day use of the hand(s)
  • Better visualization of the hand anatomy
  • Peace of mind knowing you are benefitting from the safest and most advanced technology available

What Can I Expect After Carpal Tunnel Surgery?

Carpal tunnel release using the Stratos Endoscopic Release System is an outpatient procedure in which Dr. Loredo is able to access the carpal tunnel endoscopically through a tiny opening at the wrist.

This access allows Dr. Loredo to cut only the carpal tunnel ligament, unlike other more invasive procedures which require the surgeon to cut through skin, fat, fascia and muscle to access the carpal tunnel.

This minimally-invasive approach provides for instantaneous relief from pain for most patients and a much faster recovery time. Most patients will be able to regain full unrestricted use of their wrists in a week or less.
