Ulnar Nerve Release

The surgical procedure begins with a small 3-4 inch incision on the elbow, particularly in between the two prominences that are on the same side as the thumb. After location of the ulnar nerve, it is then observed throughout the entire arm up to the triceps muscles of the patient’s body. With complete decompression of the nerve along the arm, the tissue and skin around the incision are used for the stitching up process, in where the arm post-surgery needs to be elevated in order to maintain steady blood flow in the arm itself.
