72-Year Old Patient Reports End of Neuropathy Pain Following Nerve Decompression Procedure

“The success of this procedure and its ability to improve a patient’s quality of life are truly remarkable – especially given the conventional belief that there isn’t an existing treatment for Neuropathy. As medical research and technological advancements further improve the field of diabetic neuropathy, ideally patients will undergo surgery before developing complications such as pain, ulcerations, and amputations.”Dr. Michael Rose

Shrewsbury, NJ – April 26, 2010 – The Plastic Surgery Center today announced that following an innovative triple nerve decompression surgery performed by Dr. Michael Rose, Mr. Arthur Staffin reports that he has been free of his prior neuropathy pain since undergoing the procedure in July 2008.

Mr. Staffin commented, “I can’t believe how significantly my comfort level and my life in general have improved from this procedure! For years, I had suffered uncontrollable pain in my lower extremities.  I sought pain management, orthopedists, and would take up to five pain killers a day, but none of it worked.  I am so pleased to have had this procedure – it changed my life!”

Triple nerve decompression surgery is an innovative procedure performed to re-establish nerve function throughout an arm or leg, in order to mitigate pain, restore feeling, and reduce the risk of amputation – commonly a result of diabetes.  It is an outpatient procedure that involves three small incisions and lasts approximately an hour and a half.  The surgery can provide immediate results including reduced pain and return of sensation. The procedure has up to an approximate 90 percent success rate in reducing pain and increasing sensation in properly selected patients and is covered by most insurance companies.

“In addition to the surgery often providing immediate relief to the patient, postoperative discomfort is minimal, and results are long-lasting, almost never requiring a second procedure,” said Dr. Michael Rose.  “The success of this procedure and its ability to improve a patient’s quality of life are truly remarkable – especially given the conventional belief that there isn’t an existing treatment for Neuropathy.  As medical research and technological advancements further improve the field of diabetic neuropathy, ideally patients will undergo surgery before developing complications such as pain, ulcerations, and amputations.”
