• DAVENPORT, IA--(Marketwired - Apr 13, 2017) - A condition
affecting millions of Americans, severe carpal tunnel syndrome can
cause significant discomfort and limit mobility. A new instrument
that enables micro-invasive carpal tunnel release offers better
results, shorter recovery, and reduced pain compared to traditional
surgery, says Quad Cities orthopaedic surgeon Tyson Cobb, MD. He
indicates the SONEX SX-One MicroKnife™ e ui es a tiny in ision
and includes tissue-sparing features that promote faster healing
and minimize the risk of complications.
• The SX-One MicroKnife™ is designed to ente th ough a fou to fivemillimeter-long incision, an opening smaller than the end of a pencil
eraser. Dr. Cobb explains that once the device is inserted he can guide
the instrument to the transverse carpal ligament (TCL) using ultrasound
technology, which supplies an image of the interior structures. Once
positioned, he says the TCL Blade™ an e a tivated to elease the
irritated ligament and allow smoother, pain-free movement.
• In addition to the blade remaining enclosed until needed, Dr. Cobb
notes that the SX-One MicroKnife™ in ludes Stealth MicroGuards™,
which deploy to create a safe space around the scalpel and minimize
the risk of damage to surrounding tissues. He says the blade and guards
can all be closed back up and removed through the same small opening,
and no stitches are required -- an adhesive bandage is sufficient to seal

an incision that is half-an-inch to an inch long or greater. He says
this size opening typically takes longer to heal, causes the patient
more pain, and has a higher risk of causing damage to nearby blood
vessels, tendons, and nerves than the micro-invasive technique
using the SX-One MicroKnife™. Fo these easons, D . Co
patients with severe carpal tunnel syndrome may benefit from
consulting with an orthopaedic hand surgeon who is adept with this
advanced technology. "We are proud to be the first to bring this
technology to the Quad Cities. In addition to faster recovery and
less post-operative pain, this new technology will allow the
convenience of an in-office procedure that costs less than half of
