The elbow is responsible for proper functioning of the entire arm. When the elbow has been injured or damaged due to arthritis, disease, sports injuries or repetitive motions, it can make it difficult for the patient to control the hands and perform the simplest of normal activities. Cubital Tunnel Syndrome is caused by compression of the ulnar nerve at the elbow, resulting in hand and finger numbness. Dr. Lies may recommend nerve decompression or elbow surgery to reopen the tunnel, remove pressure, and alleviate pain the patient may be experiencing.
