BREAKTHROUGH SURGICAL PROCEDURE

With breakthrough nerve decompression surgery, pioneered by Dr. A. Lee Dellon, patients can overcome the debilitating effects of peripheral neuropathy. Nerve decompression surgery relieves the compression that causes peripheral neuropathy. It restores blood flow to the nerves, allows nerves to recover, facilitates nerve regeneration and eliminates symptoms of numbness, pain and tingling.


SURGICAL RISKS

The “team approach” that the surgeons at Essex Surgical Arts Surgery Center utilize to reverse the symptoms of Peripheral Neuropathy offer the best chance for relief of you symptoms. Risks related with this procedure may include:

  1.     Anesthesia

  2.     Bleeding

  3.     Infection

  4.     Scar formation

  5.     One year for sensory recovery

  6.     Pain - requiring the use of pain medication

  7.     The stitches in the foot or ankle may break during walking, extending the approximate     time for wound healing.
