The author discusses his experience of having a Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS) on his right hand. He is critical on the burden brought by the CTS to his work as a musician and as a recording engineer due to the numbness he felt when wearing a composing/recording hat and playing a jumbo acoustic guitar. Moreover, he mentions surgeon Angela Y. Giuffrida of Active Orthopedics & Sports Medicine who confirmed and treated his CTS through a six-minute actual surgery at Hackensack Medical Center.
