Asif Ilyas, MD, FACS
Professor of Orthopedic Surgery
Program Director of Hand Surgery
Dr. Asif Ilyas performs a carpal tunnel release, the most common hand surgery, on a cadaveric hand. This surgery is typically done for paresthesia in the hand due to median nerve compression when non-operative treatment, such as splinting and injections, fails or becomes recalcitrant.
