Ulnar/Cubital Tunnel Syndrome

Ulnar Tunnel Syndrome (UTS) is a common disorder where the ulnar nerve loses blood-flow as it courses around the inner bony part of the elbow. This is the spot that people refer to as the “funny bone.” UTS can result in numb fingers (usually the ring and pinky) as well as weakness of the hand muscles. It often bothers patients while sleeping, driving, working or other times when the elbow is bent.
