Depends: There are conservative options for cubital tunnel syndrome but the response to them can be variable. If your symptoms are bad enough to warrant surgery, then surgery can be very helpful often with complete resolution of symptoms. There are a variety of surgeries out there including endoscopic, in situ and transposition surgeries. Speak to your surgeon about which is best for you.
