Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in Flowood, MS
Ready to get started?Contact Us
Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is a condition brought on by increased pressure on the median nerve at the wrist. When the swelling from this increased pressure becomes great enough to disturb the way the nerve works, numbness, tingling, and pain may be felt in the arm, hand, and fingers. Symptoms are usually felt during the night but also may be noticed during daily activities such as driving or reading a newspaper.
If you suspect that you suffer from CTS, a personal consultation with a Face & Body Center surgeon should be your first step. At our Jackson, MS practice, your carpal tunnel syndrome specialist will take a detailed look at your medical history, including medical conditions, how the hands have been used, and whether there were any prior injuries. Thyroid conditions, rheumatoid arthritis, and diabetes can be associated with CTS.
Symptoms can often be relieved without surgery through wrist splints and steroid injections. If symptoms persist, surgery may be needed to make more room for the nerve. Following surgery, soreness around the incision may last for several weeks, and it can take several months for strength in the hand and wrist to return to normal. Your Jackson, MS carpal tunnel syndrome specialist will consult with you to determine the best course of treatment for your CTS.
Types of Surgeries
- Open release: After a general anesthetic, this surgery involves a small incision, 1 –2 inches in size, made in the wrist area. The hand surgeon is then able to see and sever the carpal tunnel ligament clearly, and relieve the painful symptoms.
- Endoscopic release: A local anesthetic is implemented before 2 small incisions are made in the hand, and tiny tubes are inserted into each of the incisions. A small endoscopic camera is fed through an incision, and a small knife through the other. The camera gives a clear view of the carpal ligament, which allows the hand surgeon to cut through it without having to open the skin or carpal tunnel cover.

Awesome Experince - After visiting just about every Surgeon in MS and LA, I saw Dr. Davidson, I knew right then he was my pick. In October 2016 I went in to the office and he drained my 450 each breast saline implants. No pain so simple, sent me home and said come back in 6 weeks. Mind you I still had the bags in. Thought this would be hard really never knew they were there. I had some pre-cancerous spots...
I Had a Great Experience and I Highly Recommend Dr. Brantley and His Amazing Staff! - I had a "mommy makeover" done by Dr. Brantley in October of 2021. He performed a tummy tuck, liposuction, and a breast lift with implants. Dr. Brantley and his entire staff are very kind, courteous, and professional. They answered all of my questions in person, by phone, and email (I had a lot) thoroughly and never acted as if I was being bothersome. Dr. Brantley went over the entire procedure during our consultation and again before he performed the surgery. The surgery went exactly as planned. I had liposuction done to my stomach and back. I had a tummy tuck, and I had a breast lift with implants. I was around a C 1/2 before the surgery. We discussed just doing a lift without implants but Ms. Macala showed me pictures of a lift with implants and without. I decided the lift looks better WITH the implants. I only went up about a half size to a D because I am a smaller person and I wanted them to look more natural. The liposuction to my stomach area and the tummy tuck were extremely successful. The liposuction to my back wasn't as noticeable. There is still a little fat in my back area. However I'm working on that with diet and exercise. The recovery process was comparable to a 2nd or 3rd C-section. I say that because I have had 2 C-sections and my 1st was a breeze. I was pretty sore for around a week, but I could manage ok after about 3 days. I haven't had any complications during recovery. Everything looks very good. I do have some scaring even after using the recommended scar gel. My abdomen scars from the tummy tuck are pretty noticeable. But honestly no one sees those except my husband anyways. And they do look better if I have been tanning. The only thing that seems out of the ordinary with my experience is that the dissolvable stitches in my abdomen have not dissolved yet. They are still very much intact. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Brantley and am happy with the decision to have the mommy makeup surgery. I love my results!!
Dr. Smith is great....
Have been able to wear clothes that I could never wear before - I had a breast reduction a few months ago and it was the best decision I have ever made! I went years with chronic back and neck pain and I always had to buy my clothes one or two sizes bigger just to fit my breasts. My breasts had always been my biggest insecurity. When I decided to go through with having a breast reduction, I heard so many great things about Dr. Brantley. After my consultation with him, I had no doubts about having the surgery. He was amazing with providing me with all the information I would need and making sure I was comfortable. Since the surgery, I have had no pain! I have also been able to wear clothes that I could never wear before with my large breasts. Having a breast reduction completely changed my life. I am so thankful for Dr. Brantley and his team for being so great throughout the process and giving me my confidence back!
Very very wonderful staff, they greet you with all smiles, everyone listens to the patient and ask questions. They are very caring, loving and gives patients the most positive vibe ever. Dr. Adrian Smith, is so amazing. If I could drive to Flowood twice a week, I would, he's just that amazing and loving, caring, and respectful. He does awesome work. He has recently done my breast reduction, and oh my God, I have not had a neck nor back pain since. I will definitely be going back for my tummy tuck. I recommend Dr. Adrian Smith to anyone. Go check him out. Please he and the staff has a ten star from me.. 💜💜💜💜
