You do so much with your hands without even thinking about it. Are you thinking about your hands more than you would like?
Carpal tunnel syndrome is a condition that causes numbness, tingling, or pain in your hand, wrist or arm, and the American College of Rheumatology reports that carpal tunnel syndrome affects 4-10 million Americans. Classic symptoms include burning, numbness, tingling or pain in your thumb and fingers. These feelings can also travel up your forearm to your shoulder. Symptoms often interrupt sleep and can occur while driving, using your phone and various other activities according to WebMD.
Take the Elite Carpal Tunnel Quiz to assess your likelihood of having carpal tunnel syndrome.
Left untreated, carpal tunnel syndrome can lead to permanent nerve damage with associated numbness and hand muscle atrophy/weakness. Unfortunately, getting treatment can sometimes be as much of a nuisance as the condition itself.
That's why Elite Carpal Tunnel, a new clinic in Draper, is seeking to provide better options for patients. If you want faster, more convenient and affordable care with truly transparent pricing, this may be the solution you've been looking for. Appointments are easy to book online.
Elite Carpal Tunnel has simplified its care delivery model so that all your carpal tunnel care can be done more efficiently in one location (No more dealing with multiple providers, multiple visits, multiple waiting rooms or multiple bills.) They take care of everything you need — from initial evaluation to testing, treatment and surgery — all within their outpatient facility.
Thankfully, you don't have to sacrifice quality or experience for more convenient care. While the healthcare delivery model they've developed is new, the medical care is tried and true. Dr. Travis Peterson has been practicing for over 11 years and has performed thousands of carpal tunnel release surgeries.
More than carpal tunnel care
As a board-certified orthopedic surgeon with subspecialty certification in hand surgery, Dr. Peterson is also qualified and able to evaluate and treat patients for several other hand problems. (For a full list of these conditions, visit the Elite Carpal Tunnel website.) However, if you're suffering from an acute, traumatic injury resulting in broken bones, lacerated tendons, or open wounds, it's best to seek emergency medical care.
Why wait months?
The typical carpal tunnel care path in the U.S. has traditionally involved multiple visits with multiple providers. This process can leave patients feeling frustrated with the inconvenience and slow process. But when you're dealing with persistent numbness and pain, it's inconvenient and exhausting to have to jump through several medical hoops to get the care you need. Elite Carpal Tunnel's efficient care model streamlines the treatment process so that you can get care in a week or less instead of having to wait for months.
Significant cost advantages
You can save a lot of time—and a lot of money using Elite Carpal Tunnel's unique approach, rather than having your procedure at a hospital or surgery center. Elite Carpal Tunnel offers flat-fee cash self-pay pricing for comprehensive carpal tunnel care. Elite's low self-pay prices are listed on the Elite website.
Imagine knowing the cost of your medical care before you get it. You don't have to imagine it at Elite Carpal Tunnel. Their transparent, self-pay model brings clarity to the financial picture and removes barriers between patients and physicians. In many cases, it may even cost less than using insurance. Savings may be greatest for those with high-deductible health plans. Financing is also available, and services can be paid for with an HSA card as well.
Elite Carpal Tunnel is also now paneled with several common insurance plans.
