SmartRelease® Endoscopic Soft Tissue Release System
Single-portal Endoscopic Surgery is a minimally invasive procedure that reduces post-operative pain by avoiding an open incision extending from the wrist across to the palm. Endoscopic Surgery is highly effective and has been used for more than 20 years. It results in less post-operative pain, a minimal scar concealed by a wrist crease, and generally allows patients to resume some normal activities in a short period of time. 1, 2
