CARPAL TUNNEL SYNDROME

I have been diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome grade I in right hand. I have consulted some doctors who have advised surgery keeping in view the daily increase in pain. It has been two years and now it has become very comfortable. Is surgery for CTS safe? Whether my hand would lose power? What are the risks? What are the side effects? Where to get it done?
