EHI’s Hand Specialists, are experts in
the INSTRATEK-Brown ECTR Procedure:

“The gold standard in endoscopic CTS treatment”

“The endoscopic treatment of choice for CTS”

Only a few surgeons in the country are now true experts in this technique:

  • Developed and patented by late Dr. M.G Brown in 1991, the INSTRATEK-Brown ECTR system, was used was almost exclusively at the Brown Hand Centers franchise. The national closure of all their franchise clinics left only a few true experts in this technique.
  • In contrast to any other Endoscopic Carpal Tunnel Release System in the market to date, the INSTRATEK-Brown Procedure system design, has the most powerful published research supporting its safety and efficacy in treating carpal tunnel syndrome.
    No other system in the market has this kind of supporting research data
    No other ECTR system has been studied with such powerful numbers
  • The Journal of Plastic Reconstructive Surgery in 2007, shows the largest series of cases ever published for ECTR surgery:  14.722 patients treated over a 12 year period, with only one reported injury (0.007%), proving its safety and efficacy when performed by a true expert.
  • The Journal of Neurosurgery published an independent literature review comparing different types of ECTR systems and concluded that the “Brown-INSTRATEK” ECTR system was “their procedure of choice”.
Dr. Lerner is the only true expert in the Instratek-Brown ECTR procedure in the Austin area
and has performed thousands of ECTRs locally.
Dr.s Herron and Matthewson are expertly trained in the Instratek-Brown ECTR procedures
and have performed several thousand of them on patients in the greater SA area.
