What are the options for wrist surgery for carpel tunnel syndrome?

Open carpal tunnel release surgery has a longer recovery time and leaves behind a larger scar, as WebMD reports. Endoscopic carpal tunnel release surgery has a significantly shorter recovery time and creates smaller scars that tend to heal with less pain. However, one downside to endoscopic carpal tunnel surgery is that the procedure carries a slightly higher risk of complications.
