Quad Cities Orthopaedic Surgeons Detail Hidden
Costs of Cubital Tunnel Syndrome
  • - Dr. Tyson Cobb

  • Dr Tyson Cobb discuses how the costs associated
    with cubital tunnel syndrome affect employer and
    employee and explain the benefits of minimally
    invasive surgery.
  • Davenport, IA Cubital tunnel syndrome is the
    second most common condition involving nerve
    compression of the arm after carpal tunnel
    syndrome, Dr Cobb. They recently explained how
    this prevalent malady can often cause healthcare
    costs to rise dramatically in a workplace
    environment for both the employer and the
    employee. In response to this concern, they
    recommend minimally invasive surgery to help
    reduce costs, eliminate personal discomfort, and
    increase workplace efficiency.

  • The practice explains that while there is
    currently no link between office work and cubital
    tunnel syndrome, there can be both direct and
    indirect costs for employers and employees when
    an individual suffers from this condition. For
    instance, they indicate that some of the indirect
    costs to the employer include the time spent
    replacing the employee and training a new one,
    dealing with accident or injury investigations,
    and general workplace disruption. For employees,
    they note, indirect costs may include loss of
    fringe benefits, disruptive hospital and doctor
    visits, and inability to enjoy routine activities
    outside of work. The high cost of cubital tunnel
    syndrome, they explain, typically can be
    ameliorated with a simple, effective solution
    minimally invasive surgery.

  • A recent publication by Cobb, et al., (Cobb,
    Walden, Merrell, Lemke. Setting expectations
    following endoscopic cubital tunnel release.
    HAND, April 2014) demonstrated that patients are
    able to get back to full duty 63 days sooner
    following endoscopic cubital tunnel. The
    orthopaedic surgeons further emphasize the
    benefits of this operation by indicating the
    rapid recovery period can mean a savings of up to
    436 million annually for the United States.
    Healthcare costs in the nation can be staggering,
    they suggest, and this opportunity to reduce fees
    can amount to an economic windfall.
  • Ultimately, the physicians at Orthopaedic
    Specialists believe that providing a resource on
    the direct and indirect costs of cubital tunnel
    syndrome will help patients with this condition
    receive the most effective treatment that may
    allow them to return to work and regular life
    sooner and with better results.
