Quad Cities Hand Surgeon Helps
Develop Micro-Invasive Carpal
Tunnel Treatment

Dr. Tyson Cobb

Dr. Tyson Cobb of Orthopaedic Specialists, PC explains the
benefits of micro-invasive carpal tunnel release using the Sonex
SX-One MicroKnife™, including low downtime and reduced
Davenport, IA — Providing effective treatment for carpal tunnel
syndrome (CTS) is of primary concern to Dr. Tyson Cobb, an
orthopaedic hand surgeon in the Quad Cities. To better assist
patients suffering from this common condition, he helped to
develop a procedure called ultrasound-guided micro-invasive
carpal tunnel release, which utilizes the innovative Sonex SX-One
MicroKnife™. He says the advanced technique and instrument
can reduce downtime, minimize pain, and improve results.

Dr. Tyson Cobb explains that this new method of carpal tunnel
release can be performed in-office or in a surgical center and
requires only local anesthetic, making the technique more
accessible to patients who cannot receive traditional anesthesia.
“For patients who fail medical clearance, it allows us to do a
simple office-based procedure, similar to what you might have in
a dental office.”
Part of what makes this procedure so unique, Dr. Cobb reveals, is
the use of ultrasound technology to guide the process and
identify essential anatomic structures. Once the area of concern
is identified, he can insert the SX-One MicroKnife™ through a tiny
incision and reduce pressure on the median nerve—the cause
of carpal tunnel syndrome.

Dr. Tyson Cobb says the SX-One MicroKnife™ has several built-in
safety features, including a blade that extends and retracts, as
well as inflatable bumpers. Both elements are designed to
minimize risk of harm to surrounding tissues in the treatment
area. The diminutive size of the device also means the incision
can be as small as four or five millimeters, or about the size of
the top of a pencil eraser. Dr. Cobb adds that sutures typically
will not be needed to close the incision; an adhesive bandage is
As the first surgeon in the state of Iowa to perform the
treatment, Dr. Cobb hopes to bring relief to many individuals
suffering from CTS who have been unable to find a suitable
solution. Dr. Cobb reports: “All Sonex procedures have been
successful, and all of my patients have been very happy with the
outcome. We are very excited to be able to offer this new
treatment option and we enjoy seeing patients benefit from a
much shorter recovery.”
