Out Of Town Patients
Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants and Office Managers are invited to join us December 7th at Panevino’s to Celebrate our Designation as a Carpal Tunnel Center of Excellence!
Using real-time ultrasound guidance, carpal tunnel release (CTR) can be performed in minutes and offers a recovery time you can measure in days, not months. Find out if CTR with ultrasound guidance is right for your patients.
Fortunately, now there’s a proven way to get rapid relief from carpal tunnel pain and return your patient quickly to normal activities.
Thanks to a low-profile, safe, and effective instrument called UltraGuideCTR™ — and real-time ultrasound guidance — Dr. Grabow can perform CTR in a matter of minutes, using a wrist incision smaller than a tic tac®.
Afterwards, your patient is able to resume activities as tolerated. And most patients can return to work and the activities they love within 3 to 6 days³.
Significant benefits include¹⁻³ :
• Performed in a hospital procedure space at St. Rose Siena Hospital or in our Office Procedure Suite.
• Patients DO NOT NEED TO BE UNCONSCIOUS, local anesthesia only!
• Patients DO NOT NEED TO STOP BLOOD THINNERS!
• Patients DO NOT NEED TO BE NPO!
• The micro wrist incision is so small it is closed with steri strips.
• Post procedure discomfort is minimal. Only NSAIDS or Tylenol is taken.
• Postoperative therapy typically not required
• Immediate motion in the hand for rapid recovery
• Immediate use of walkers, rollators, wheel chairs, canes is allowed.
• Return to normal activity and work in 3 to 6 days for most!
Most patients are pleasantly surprised at how simple carpal tunnel release is with UltraGuideCTR and real-time ultrasound guidance.
This outpatient procedure is performed at St. Rose Siena Hospital for our Medicare and Insured patients. Other than pre-registering at the hospital – patients DO NOT NEED any preop testing or preparation because the procedure is done under local anesthesia. Patients can eat a light breakfast and lunch and can take their daily medications as they normally do. Patients typically are asked to arrive approximately one and a half (1 1/2) hours before their procedure. They are typically done with their procedure and ready to go home in about an hour. Dr. Grabow provides them detailed but easy to understand post-procedure care information. Yes, it’s really that easy! After the procedure they will have a light padded wrap on their hand to allow easy hand use, walker use, etc. The wrap is removed in three days. Patients can get the incision wet in the shower, bath, or pool and simply cover the healing incision with a simple adhesive bandage.
Uninsured patients, Cash Pay patients, High deductible patients, etc.
For patients who cannot go to St. Rose Siena Hospital or want to avoid the high cash pay cost at the hospital, our No Sedation, Micro Incision Ultrasound Guided Carpal Tunnel Release is also performed safely and efficiently in our Concierge Carpal Tunnel Procedure Suite. Again – the pre-procedure preparation for your patients is minimal. Other than wearing loose fitting clothing, they don’t require any preop testing, they can continue taking their blood thinners and other medications. After the procedure they will have a light padded wrap on their hand to allow easy hand use, walker use, etc. The wrap is removed in three days. Patients can get the incision wet in the shower, bath, or pool and simply cover the healing incision with a simple adhesive bandage.
Insured patients: Medicare, Culinary, Blue Cross, etc.
Ultrasound Guided Carpal tunnel release is covered by the majority of commercial insurances. Essentially if your patient’s insurance covers St. Rose Siena Hospital – they will cover the procedure.
Out-of-pocket cost, will vary based on their deductible, co-insurance, and co-pay plan with their insurance carrier.

Our cash pay pricing for a single wrist or bilateral wrist treatment is over a thousand dollars less than the cost of carpal tunnel release at a surgery center or hospital. When you included the added benefit of minimal post-procedure discomfort, no need for therapy, and rapid return to work – this is the ideal carpal tunnel solution for the patient paying cash for their procedure. For patients choosing this option, financing is available via CareCredit as well.
