With Type 1 and Type 2 Diabetes rates climbing, the sufferers of diabetic neuropathy increase as well.  These patients suffer from debilitating pain that radiates from the hands, feet, legs and arms.  It has been referred to for years as an irreversible disease, and treated as such by physicians.  They look to prevent the disease’s progression, and minimize pain with medication, or specialized footwear.

However, new breakthroughs in the field of nerve decompression have opened up pathways to new treatments for the pain of diabetic neuropathy.  Nerve decompression works to ease the pain that inflamed tissue puts on the nerves in the extremities and has shown to be VERY effective in the fight against diabetic neuropathy.  Clinical trials and studies back nerve decompression as a breakthrough treatment.

The goals are simple for this surgery:  restore sensation and eliminate the pain.  When the sensation is restored, it severely reduces the risk for ulceration and infection that leads to amputation.  Many patients find that their need for the medications is lessened after the surgery is complete.

If you suffer from diabetic neuropathy, physicians from Neuropax Clinic can determine whether surgery might be appropriate for you. A comprehensive evaluation will be performed to determine whether you have compressed nerves that may respond to surgery. We have already helped many patients regain sensation and get relief from pain with this surgical approach.
