In brief: Yes
Yes, there is surgery that can be done called carpal tunnel release surgery.
However, it is usually reserved until after more conservative measures have failed. If you are interested in surgery, you would need to see an orthopedic surgeon to discuss the details.

In brief: Yes
Surgery can be immensely helpful in treating carpal tunnel syndrome, especially if more conservative measures have failed.
Typically, surgery is performed through a small open incision or by means of an endoscopic approach (small camera is inserted). Surgery often works quite well!

In brief: Median nerve release
Yes - the carpal ligament is cut which frees up pressure on the median nerve in the wrist.
This relieves the discomfort of carpal tunnel syndrome.
