Carpal Tunnel Surgery

Has anyone in the Xania area had wrist surgery for this condition? I would appreciate any recommendations re surgeons, private clinic vs general hospital, approximate cost, etc. Thanks in advance.

I have no experience of that particular form of surgery but I would start with [url=Gavralkis clinic]Gavrilakis Clinic[/url] on Marko Botsari. They have excellent facilities. If their resident surgeons don't perform Carpal Tunnel Surgery I am sure they will have a cooperation with a specialist who does.

I think that type of surgery is usually carried out by orthopaedic specialists and I know quite a few people who have found Dr Dimitriadis very good for joint replacement operations so you could also try him. He normally performs operations in Gavrilakis Clinic.

Thank you for all suggestions. I may well look into acupuncture/physio instead of an op, even though I loathe needles! If this doesn't work out, at least I now have the name of a doctor to approach as a last resort.

Warwick mentioned Mr Dimitriadis in his response above and both my wife and I have consulted him (and been treated by him) and found him very thorough. I first saw him about four of five years ago with a problem knee that originated with a sports injury about 50 years ago. Treatment for that was injections of what I called a lubricant - four in total at weekly intervals and totally painless. I returned about this time last year for treatment to both knees, similar to the previous but a more advanced substance. I asked about knee replacement and basically he said the problem was not yet severe enough to justify surgery. My wife had treatment that, again, was similar to mine but her problem was no more urgent than mine but involved ligaments, tendons, cartilage whereas mine was just the latter. He also described a new stem cell treatment, starting with taking some of my blood but suggested that initial results have been good but he'd like to wait for a couple of years to establish those results over a longer period.
You won't have to go to Gavrilakis clinic (now known as Iasis Hospital. His office address as linked by Warwick is close to Zara, next door to Pull & Bear.
