I was contemplating carpal tunnel surgery, then I heard Dr. Daniel Malone speak on a local radio station talking about a new carpal tunnel procedure. This new procedure requires no operating room, no knife, no anesthesia, and no prolonged healing. Minimal physical therapy after the procedure could be done easily at home by the patient. That’s when I decided to go to Dr. Malone and decided to go ahead with this new procedure. January 4, 2016 I had my left hand done. I was so happy with my results that I had my right hand done. Once again the results were excellent! I had no need for pain medications. I was able to do normal activities within 3-4 days! I could do the therapy at home. I highly recommend this procedure. No numbness whatsoever.
