Carpal Tunnel Syndrome causes intense pain in the hands and wrists... but even though typing can aggravate symptoms, surgeons say that CTS isn't caused by computer or phone use. Dr. Alejandro Badia joins Dr. Drew with tips on pain reduction and available treatments.

Dr. Alejandro Badia is an internationally recognized hand and upper extremity surgeon. He graduated from Cornell University and completed his medical degree at NYU, followed by a hand/microsurgery fellowship in Pittsburgh and trauma fellowship in Germany. After years of a successful medical career, he saw a need for specialized urgent care centers to efficiently assess and treat a range of orthopedic and sports injuries on a walk-in basis, with a special focus on broken bones, sprains, torn muscles, and other sports and workers compensation injuries.
