The ulnar nerve goes round the back of the inner side of your elbow and through a tight tunnel between the forearm muscles. Ulnar nerve compression happens when there is increased pressure on the ulnar nerve, usually resulting in numbness in your ring and little fingers.

Description

Various anaesthetic techniques are possible. The operation usually takes 30 to 45 minutes.

Your surgeon will make a cut over the back of the inner side of your elbow. They will cut any tight tissue that is compressing the nerve.
