Nerve Decompression

In the past, neuropathy was approached as a painful disease state for which symptoms could only be masked, but could rarely be cured. Some doctors subscribe to the theory that the nerve dies from the effects of neuropathy, and that the only treatment is to mask the pain and live with the disease.

We now know that the nerve is not dead, but has poor conducting abilities, similar to that of a short in electrical wiring. This is caused by the compression around and within the nerves. This compression is much like that seen in carpal tunnel syndrome where the hand experiences numbness, tingling and burning due to compression of the wrist nerve. In fact, if the compression continues long enough within the carpal tunnel, loss of muscular strength will also occur.

Dellon Decompression is an exciting new treatment option for patients that suffer from peripheral neuropathy, drop foot and neuritis. This procedure was developed by Dr. A. Lee Dellon, a Plastic Surgeon from John Hopkins University School of Medicine. This has truly been a revolutionary procedure that has helped thousands of patients. The surgical procedure for lower extremity neuropathy is similar to that done for carpal tunnel, and relieves pressure in the legs, ankles and feet. Studies have found that by performing a surgical nerve decompression, 80% of all patients have good to excellent relief from their neuropathic pain or numbness.
