Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
Cubital tunnel syndrome occurs due to compression of one of the arm nerves called the ulnar nerve, sometimes called the funny bone nerve. The ulnar nerve gets compressed as it passes on the inside of the elbow from the upper arm to the forearm. The nerve runs in a space called the cubital tunnel. When there is too much swelling within the space, the ulnar nerve will get pinched, causing cubital tunnel syndrome. Dr. Vizzi can guide you through the treatment options for cubital tunnel syndrome. These options may include nonsurgical and /or surgical treatment depending on the severity of the symptoms, the length of the symptoms and how well the symptoms respond to treatment.
