Marko Bodor, MD, will deliver a Keynote speech discussing up-and-coming treatments of carpal tunnel syndrome at the 26th Annual Meeting of the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine on Thursday, May 11, in San Diego, CA.
Dr. Bodor has been a trailblazer in exploring innovative ways to treat carpal tunnel syndrome, one of the most common wrist and upper extremity conditions. He will explore this topic during his presentation titled, “Expanding the Treatment Options for Hand and Wrist Conditions.”
“Recent advances in high-frequency ultrasound allow the ‘camera’ to stay on the outside,” Dr. Bodor said. “The surgeon can see all the pertinent structures within the carpal tunnel, and the procedure can be done using a single 2-4 mm incision and local anesthesia. Most patients are able to return to work within a few days.”
Dr. Bodor is one of the pioneers of this technique, having performed over 100 operations. He works in Napa, California, and serves as the Director of Medical Research for the Napa Medical Research Foundation. He also is the Medical Director of the Wellness Center at the Queen of the Valley Medical Center in Napa. The founder of the Bodor Clinic, Regenerative Spine & Sports Medicine, Dr. Bodor is an assistant professor at University of California San Francisco and University of California Davis.
The presentation addresses a new approach to carpal tunnel release, the second-most common surgical procedure after hysterectomy. Dr. Bodor will cover the history of the procedure during the “Hot off the Press” Session.
