How soon will I be discharged after an ulnar nerve decompression procedure?

Ulnar nerve decompression is not a complicated procedure, so you shouldn’t spend too much time in the hospital.

Typically, ulnar nerve decompression is performed on an outpatient basis. This means that you will probably be discharged from the hospital the same day you undergo the intervention.

It is also possible to spend the night in the hospital and be discharged the following day. We will be able to tell you how long your hospital stay is going to be after you have the intervention and we evaluate its outcome.
