Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Hosted by Yuan Y. Liu, MD

Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is much more than just pins and needles. It’s sharp, radiating pain in your wrist, hand, and arm that wakes you at night. It’s tingling, numbness and weakness that doesn’t go away, even during the day.

If you’ve been feeling this way for three months or more, you might have CTS. Submit a question and chat with Cooper’s Yuan Liu, M.D., Attending Surgeon, Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Dr. Liu came to Cooper last year after completing residencies in general and plastic surgery and a fellowship in molecular biology at Yale University School of Medicine. He received his medical degree from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.

Dr. Liu is one of the few surgeons in our region who specializes in performing carpal tunnel release surgery using a single, tiny incision. He also has special interests in treating melanoma, craniofacial surgery, micro-vascular surgery, reconstructive surgery, hand surgery and cosmetic surgery.
