Janice and Wilke Renwick have made a significant donation to Peace Harbor Hospital Foundation toward the purchase of endoscopic carpal tunnel equipment in honor of Dr. Bruce Watanabe, orthopedic surgeon at the hospital.

“We are so excited to make this contribution for new carpal tunnel equipment,” said Janice Renwick. “Dr. Watanabe and the surgery staff at Peace Harbor Hospital are just great. This is our chance to give something back.”

Carpal tunnel syndrome is a common condition that can require surgery. Traditional surgery can be painful and involve lengthy healing time. The endoscopic carpal tunnel procedure uses state-of-the-art equipment that offers many patient benefits. The procedure is less invasive than traditional carpal tunnel surgery and uses a small camera and lens, which allows the surgeon to optimally identify and treat the tissue.
