Compartment Syndrome Treatment
Request An Appointment
Compartment syndrome happens when the muscles, nerves, and blood vessels in a particular area of the body become compressed. This can happen due to an injury, surgery, or burn. The condition is treated by releasing the pressure on the affected area. This is done through a procedure called fasciotomy. Our compartment syndrome treatment is comprehensive and provides the required relief.
Some of the common causes that may result in this syndrome include:
- Muscle injury
- Severe burn
- Fracture surgery
- Crush injuries
The most common symptom of compartment syndrome is pain. This is usually followed by swelling, numbness, and tingling sensations. If the condition is not treated immediately, it can lead to tissue death and permanent nerve damage.
Our Treatment Options
Rest and elevation are the first-line treatments for compartment syndrome. This involves elevating the affected limb above heart level and resting it. If the pain is severe, our specialists may prescribe pain medication.
Surgery is also an option for treating compartment syndrome. The goal of surgery is to relieve the pressure in the affected compartment by cutting through the fascia. This procedure is called fasciotomy. Our team of surgeons is highly skilled and experienced in performing this surgery.
After the surgery, you will be closely monitored by our team. You will likely need to stay in the hospital for a few days. Physical therapy may also be recommended to help you regain strength and range of motion in the affected limb. Our team will work closely with you to ensure that you make a full recovery.
