In brief: High

Practically most patient are happy, but few cases did not repond because there is neuropathy, or repetitive strain injury not nerve entrapment.

In brief: Carpal tunnel

The success rate for carpal tunnel surgery depends on accurate diagnosis, including ruling out toxic or metabolic factors (e.
G early diabetes, abnormal thyroid, medication adverse effects, etc). Often modifying usage pattern and some exercises can help. If accurate electrodiagnostic study localizes the problem to the median nerve at the wrist and careful surgery is done, results are usually good.

In brief: Very high

The success rate of a carpal tunnel release is very high.
Assuming a proper work-up and failed conservative therapy, you should do well. Good luck.
