: I heard there is aa new kind of surgery for carparl tunnel - anyone else hear this and/or does anyone know about it.
: Thanks - Grammie

I saw in the news that they can just stretch the tendon instead of cutting it. Jeffereson Hospital in Philadelphia is doing it on a clinical trial. A Dr. Larson is in charge of it. They make an incision and do it through endoscopy I believe. NBC Channel 10. You can probably find it on the Web.
