What kind of doctor sees somebody for cubital tunnel syndrome?

Hand surgeon. For surgery fellowship trained hand surgeon special trained orthopedist one year of additional focused training in upper extremity surgery a general orthopedist for nonsurgical care surgical care for cubital tunnel does not enjoy the same excellent sucess rate as carpal tunnel proceed informed carefully to surgery my opinion.
See below. Cubital tunnel syndrome can be treated by a neurosurgeon, orthopaedic surgeon or by a plastic surgeon that has done a hand fellowship.
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.
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.
