Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

Institutes & Services > TriHealth Orthopedic & Sports Institute > Services > TriHealth Hand Surgery Specialists > Services > Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
Cubital Tunnel Syndrome is signaled by numbness and tingling, constant or intermittent, in the small finger and occasionally the outer side of the ring finger. It can be caused by pressure on the ulnar nerve (“crazy bone”) in the elbow. Symptoms may be soreness or aching in the elbow and weakness in some hand activities.

Treatment includes elbow padding during the day, night splinting and possibly anti-inflammatory agents. More advanced cases, indicated by constant numbness, loss of muscle tissue and other significant deterioration, may require surgical decompression of the nerve.

Our physicians are trained in all surgical techniques used to treat cubital tunnel syndrome. They can recommend the least invasive procedure to get the nerve back to normal function with minimally invasive surgery.
