In brief: Orthopaedic hand doc

Cubital tunnel syndrome involves compression of the ulnar nerve at the elbow.
This is one of many peripheral nerve compressive disorders treated by hand surgeons, the most common being cubital tunnel syndrome (cts). Make sure your hand surgeon has a certificate of additional qualification (caq) in hand surgery. Hand surgeons can be general, plastic or aa in my case, an orthopaedic surgeon.

In brief: Orthopaedic surgeon

While most orthopaedic surgeons are comfortable seeing this condition, i would recommend seeing one that has added training in hand surgery as they are very comfortable with both conservative and surgical treatment of cubital tunnel syndrome.
Some plastic surgeons also have this training.
