More than half a million people a year arrive at doctors' offices complaining of carpal tunnel syndrome or other related repetitive strain injuries. In the 1990's, carpal tunnel syndrome became the surgery of the decade. Moving into the 21st century, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the second most common type of surgery, with well over 230,000 procedures performed annually and is the #1 reported medical problem, accounting for about 50% of all work-related injuries. The U.S. Department of Labor has concluded that Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is the "chief occupational hazard " disabling workers in epidemic proportions. Statistics from 1993 indicate that repetitive strain injuries accounted for $20 billion a year in workers' compensation claims. Liberty Mutual Insurance workplace safety Index 2003 lists the top ten workplace injuries. In this top ten, #1 is overexertion (12.5 billion a year 27.3%), #3 is bodily reaction (4.7 billion a year 12.6%) and #6 repetitive motion (2.3 Billion a year 5.1%.) Doing repetitive motion can cause overexertion and bodily reaction time to decrease. So the total of these three is 19.5 billion and 45% of the pie. Almost half is attributed and contributes to RSI injuries.
*Women are twice as likely to develop Carpal Tunnel Syndrome as opposed to their male counterparts. While women account for about 45% of all workers, they experience nearly 2/3's of all work-related repetitive strain injuries.
" how does a 23% surgical success rate, warrant a $30,000 surgery?"
