Carpal Doctors is based in West Palm Beach, Florida. Its founders, Dr Humberto Porrata and Dr. Alejandro Porrata specialize in treating Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS). Their efforts to treat CTS without resorting to surgery resulted in the C-Trac innovation. CTRAC is a hand traction device that has proven successful in the treatment of carpal tunnel syndrome. A clinical research study was conducted to test the C Trac Device. This study found that 75% of C-Trac patients were able to avoid surgery by use of the Carpal Doctors device. Carpal Doctors has obtained FDA approval for the C-Trac device to be used for Carpal Tunnel Syndrome treatment. Currently, C-Trac is the only medical device available that does more that support the wrist or hand and actually treats CTS without surgery. Vitality Medical carries the Carpal Doctors C-TRAC medical device and can be purchased at C-Trac.
