Carpal Tunnel Release Surgery

Medical Tourism Patient Experience

Hospital Clinica Biblica, San Jose, Costa Rica, Central America

Hi Moe,

Thank you for your attention to details in making my `medical tourism` operation go smoothly. It has been six weeks now since my carpal tunnel surgery; I have waited to write so I can also comment on the recovery process. Since I had both hands operated on I needed help with most simple tasks after the operation and so the two of us made the best of our trip to Costa Rica with some time on the coast and in the mountains before proceeding to San Jose and the Clinica Biblica. The Hotel you had arranged was conveniently located, like new inside and with a terrific staff. The hospital staff that picked us up and took us to documentation, pre-op, tests and Doctor appointments were likewise friendly and professional. I was very comfortable with Dr Oeding; my procedure seems uncomplicated compared to many of the hip and shoulder problems he routinely sees. I was surprised that I was completely out during the operation, I had presumed that I would be awake - if not taking notes, so after the operation it took me a couple of hours to come out of that dream though I felt fine and I could move my fingers immediately. The location of the hotel proved a boon to us the next couple of days because Marion could walk to restaurants, markets, book stores, what have you while I rested and recovered..

I do not go to physical therapy but I do regular stretching of the fingers and wrist and kneed the scar area. I am very active with my hands but also careful to avoid heavy loads or impact.

In summary my hands like not going numb and not feeling lifeless when I wake up in the morning! I have already recovered about 70 percent of my strength, the sensitivity is gone and the `scar` area shows up as a little redness of the skin. We enjoyed our `necessary vacation`, the staff and Dr. Oeding were everything one could hope for and best of all my hands would still be numb if I had to save up first to have the procedures done here. I`m starting the New Year with plans of being able to work as in the old days.
