This condition involves slippage, stretching, or excess pressure on the ulnar nerve, which runs in a groove on the inner side of the elbow. Symptoms may include pain, numbness, weakness or a tingling sensation in the small fingers of the hand. If rest and therapy are not enough to relieve the problem, surgery may be required.

"I had so much back and leg pain that I was unable to go to work. After seeing a physician in the Alexandria Neurosurgical Clinic I made the decision to undergo surgery and have made a full recovery. The pain and numbness is gone and I have returned to work without any restrictions. Thank you for giving me back control of my life."
