Carpal Tunnel Syndrome relief in 15 minutes

The choice is easy.

Traditionally, the surgical options for carpal tunnel syndrome required a long recovery period and had a higher risk of nerve damage. This is because the most common surgical solution performed today requires cutting a 1-2 inch incision into the hand and wrist to view and cut the carpal ligament. As a result, people either resigned to living with the pain associated with carpal tunnel syndrome or had to find a way to take an average of one month off work to recover. Ovation Hand Institute offers a revolutionary solution that allows you to get back to your life.

“This surgery has the ability to be life-altering. I had immediate relief from the numbness. The recovery time as compared to conventional surgery is simply amazing. The care and genuine concern have been nothing less than exceptional. I am and will continue to spread the word as an advocate for this procedure.”

Brett K.

“I had dealt with generally mild carpal tunnel problems with my left hand for decades that worsened over time. With worsening hand problems, I was one of the first 100 patients to have the Ovation Technique performed to address my carpal tunnel syndrome. I was able to resume my regular work as a neurosurgeon without limitation as scheduled the following week with complete resolution of nerve symptoms and minor hand pain that gradually improved.

I was so impressed with the procedure and its results that I routinely discuss it with my patients as an option to consider for treatment of carpal tunnel.”

Wesley Griffitt, MD, FACS, Neurosurgeon

“I am a 69 yo Mayo Clinic-trained Reproductive Endocrinologist with a large infertility clinical practice in the Chicago area. When suffering from significant carpal tunnel pain, unresponsive to therapy or medications, I researched this innovative surgical technique. The remarkable & minimally invasive technique allowed me to return to my practice and do procedures in a very short period of time… amazing new option!”

Laurence A. Jacobs, M.D.

“I have talked with people that had carpal tunnel surgery and were off of work for 6 weeks. I am retired but could have gone to work the next day.”

Roger K.

“My experience at Ovation Hand Institute far exceeded my expectations. I would recommend this procedure and practice to anyone experiencing carpal tunnel discomfort. I had traditional carpal tunnel surgery years ago on my other wrist. Full recovery took over a year. In three months with this technique, I am almost totally recovered. The Ovation technique allowed me to return to my normal activities in two weeks. Amazing!”

Diane M.

“The people, from the receptionist to the medical professionals were all friendly, positive, and supportive. The treatment and surgical options promising quicker recovery with fewer side effects is a dream come true.”

Scott W.

“For the last six months, I would lay awake at night with a painfully lower arm, hand, thumb and next two fingers. Now I sleep through without any pain or tingling sensation.”

Wayne S.

“I’m so glad I found Ovation. At the time, I was so desperate for relief that I was going to submit to the old technique & would have faced a longer & much more difficult recovery. Ovation Hand Institute is innovative, modern and exceeded my expectations.”

Terri M.

“I have suffered from carpal tunnel in both hands for 30 years. As a nurse who worked in orthopedics for some time, I knew open and endoscopic procedures did not always have the best results, therefore, I delayed treatment. I knew though that I would need to have something done when my symptoms interfered with my life and with sleeping. I saw the billboard for Ovation, which intrigued me. Doing my research, reading the articles in the medical journals that had been written, watching the procedure online…it all made perfect sense. The beauty of this procedure, the concept, the technique…all of it checked off the boxes I had as a healthcare professional. I knew this was the treatment for me. I entered this with complete trust that my life would be changed for the better. Everything was perfect. I cannot say enough, except thank you from the very bottom of my heart for all each and every single one of you has done. I will always be grateful, the rest of my life.”

Tia L.

“The staff was informed, personable, answered my questions and addressed my concerns. They genuinely care about what they do and about their patients. They wanted me to feel comfortable with my decision. The procedure did not take a long time and I felt immediate relief as the local anesthetic wore off. I was able to move my fingers better than I have in years and was able to feel things again. Best of all I can sleep at night without waking due to hand and arm pain! This is the third day and the bandages are off. I need to be careful for two weeks which is impressive versus the 4-8 weeks of the alternative ‘standard’ procedures. I highly recommend the Ovation Technique be researched and considered as a better option.”
