The Yorkshire Carpal Tunnel Service has now been running since March 2013. In this time we have seen over 80 patients, who have come to see us to have their surgery performed.
We have two excellent consultants working alongside us, Mr Ajit Shetty and Mr Bernd Ketzer, who are both NHS Orthopaedic Surgeons. We also run the service with an experiences Scrub Nurse, Dave Spencer, and a HCA from the practice.
Patients are referred by their GP to the service using a letter and a scoring sheet. They are then contacted and booked into a clinic at either Askern or Mexborough, to have their surgery performed. We offer weekday and weekend appointments which help people that work.
The service has been extremely successful, and we welcome all new referrals.
