To those millions of people who experience neuropathy, you can possibly find relief at The Institute for Advanced Reconstruction.
At The Institute for Advanced Reconstruction, our surgeons offer a procedure that can only be performed by fewer than twenty plastic surgeons in the world. This procedure is called nerve decompression surgery and it is meant to relieve a select group of patients suffering from neuropathy, a condition with which nerves outside of the spinal cord and brain are damaged or compressed.
The nervous system is one of the trickier bodily systems to approach. This is because the nervous system is the pathway through which the brain communicates with the rest of the body. Disrupting these pathways can cause pain in seemingly unrelated areas of the body, loss of feeling, muscle atrophy, and paralysis. These severe symptoms are what make neuropathy such a difficult condition, one that causes such distress to the many patients we encounter.
Nerve decompression surgery can alleviate these symptoms by taking pressure off the compressed nerves. In a minimally invasive procedure, our surgeons make minor incisions in the affected area and remove small amounts of tissue surrounding the compressed nerves.
