Cubital Tunnel Syndrome is a condition that involves pressure or stretching of the ulnar nerve – also known as the “funny bone” nerve. However, it’s no laughing matter for the people experiencing the numbness, tingling, weakness, and pain that can accompany the condition.
As part of the University Orthopedics Community Lecture Series, Dr. Joseph Gil – a fellowship-trained hand and upper extremity surgeon – discussed Cubital Tunnel Syndrome and potential treatments.
