Carpal tunnel release, commonly known as carpal tunnel surgery or, if a specific surgical technique is used, carpal tunnel keyhole surgery. Surgery aims to relieve the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome by making a cut into the wrist and cutting the roof of the carpal tunnel. This relieves the pressure within the tunnel and allows the affected nerve to function.
