How It Works

Motus Biologics uses ultrasound-guidance and a minimally invasive technique to alleviate compression of the median nerve by the overlying ligament. 

By releasing the nerve, symptoms significantly improve and hand function is restored. Carpal tunnel treatment in Kansas City doesn’t have to disrupt your life.

Unlike traditional carpal tunnel release treatment, where a significantly larger incision is made on the palm, our treatment involves a very small incision in the area of the wrist that does not require sutures. This allows for a rapid recovery, less risk, and quicker healing.

Highly recommend Motus. The team there is just that – a great team – that works together to develop the best course of action in different situations. Dr Michaud is up front, honest, and clear about the pros and cons of stem cell therapy and allows her patients to make decisions without pressure on future therapies. My pain went from an 8 to a 1 and my activities have gone back to almost normal. I’m happy to have done this and highly recommend it to anyone who has the patience to give stem cell therapy a try!

Dr. Michaud is great. She is a doctor who is keen on educating her patients, so they have all the information they need. She and her staff are positive, responsive and helpful. I recommend the office and the procedure completely!

I am so grateful to have found Motus and Dr. Michaud. I had an honest open conversation about the status of my torn labrum and what my options were. She did not dismiss my questions as absurd. She is in the forefront on Stem Cells as a viable treatment. I would recommend anyone thinking of getting surgery that first reach out to Motus first.

I had a stem cell procedure from Dr. Michaud in January of this year on a knee and elbow. After the initial 2 days of soreness (as compared to weeks of pain on a past knee replacement from another surgeon), i began to feel pain relief. Dr. Michaud is so down to earth and pleasant. She plainly and honestly described the entire procedure, and prescribed a great knee brace for me to wear prior to the procedure, which went just as she had explained. I have had a much better quality of life, allowing me to travel, dance, and play golf, vs spend weeks of painful recovery from knee surgery. I would highly recommend Dr. Michaud.

What is carpal tunnel syndrome?
+ -
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) is a common condition that causes pain, numbness, and tingling in the hand and arm. The condition occurs when one of the major nerves in the hand—the median nerve—is compressed as it travels through the wrist. The median nerve controls movement in the thumb and feeling in the thumb and first three fingers. It runs down the arm and forearm, passes through the carpal tunnel at the wrist, and goes into the hand.
How is carpal tunnel treated?
+ -
Carpal Tunnel Release (CTR) with ultrasound guidance relieves the symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome while minimizing recovery time. Most patients can return to work and the activities they love in 3-6 days.Performing CTR with ultrasound guidance allows most patients to enjoy immediate motion so they can focus on getting back to their lives. If you have carpal tunnel syndrome and are considering a surgical procedure, CTR with ultrasound guidance may be right for you.
Is carpal tunnel release with ultrasound guidance covered by insurance?
+ -
Yes, the majority of carpal tunnel release is covered by most insurance carriers. Contact our office for additional information on insurance and costs.
How is carpal tunnel release with ultrasound different from traditional surgery?
+ -
Carpal tunnel release with ultrasound-guidance avoids the traditional more invasive incision across the palm. Instead, we make a very small incision over the wrist, 3-4 mm, versus the traditional incision size of 1-1.5 cm. This does not require stitches and reduces recovery time from weeks to days. An added benefit of this this carpal tunnel treatment is that it can be performed on both hands at the same time.
How do I know if I'm a candidate for carpal tunnel treatment?
+ -
We determine that you are a candidate for carpal tunnel treatment after an initial consultation in which you will be asked to complete a survey about your symptoms. You will then have an ultrasound examination on one or both hands to assess if you have carpal tunnel syndrome. This can help avoid the traditional painful and invasive nerve tests that are commonly used to diagnose this condition.
Will the carpal tunnel release procedure be painful?
+ -
The procedure is performed under local anesthesia to minimize any pain and discomfort. Most patients find the procedure to be more tolerable than expected.
What is recovery period/downtime?
+ -
Most patients will experience 3-6 days of discomfort that is easily managed with Tylenol or a prescription pain medication that the physician will prescribe at the time of your procedure.Usually 2-3 days after treatment, you are able to resume normal daily activities with less pain. Many patients are surprised to see vast improvements in symptoms within the first few days.
Are there any adverse effects?
+ -
The main adverse side effect is post-treatment discomfort. Specific risks and success rates will be discussed with each patient individually at time of the initial appointment and consultation.
Will I be able to go to work and activities after carpal tunnel treatment in Kansas City?
+ -
Most people are able to return to activity within days. Occasionally we have patients that require taking a day or two off. Everyone responds differently to the procedure. We will provide a doctor's note if necessary.
