This procedure is used to treat cubital tunnel syndrome. With the patient under general anesthesia, the surgeon makes an incision along the inner side of the elbow to access the ulnar nerve and medial epicondyle (bony bump on the inside of the elbow). The surgeon carefully moves the ulnar nerve from behind the medial epicondyle to a new position in front it. The new placement will prevent the nerve from being compressed against the medial epicondyle when the elbow is bent.
