Peripheral Nerve Surgery

What is Peripheral Nerve Surgery?

This type of plastic surgery helps to reconnect nerves that may have been injured due to either injury or illness. Often, the surgeon will reroute the nerve pathway to help restore function that may have been lost.

Our team of plastic surgeons specializes in the research, diagnosis, and treatment of a variety of peripheral nerve problems. We provide cutting-edge surgical treatment for pain caused by injury and/or compression of nerves.

Types of Peripheral Nerve Surgery

Our team of surgeons offers the most advanced treatment options for peripheral nerve conditions, including:

  • Headache/ Migraine Surgery
  • Advanced minimally invasive nerve decompression surgery for carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Minimally invasive nerve release surgery in the leg and foot for patients with diabetes and other conditions
  • Innovative microsurgical techniques to improve painful conditions involving the wrist, elbow, shoulder, chest, knee, and ankle, as well as to address pain after pelvic and inguinal hernia procedures
  • Groundbreaking nerve reconstruction, such as nerve transfers and grafts to achieve better functional recovery over a shorter period of time
  • Surgery to move or disconnect sensory nerves that cause pain after amputation, mastectomy, and any other surgical procedures
  • Surgery to reconstruct nerves that have been severed as a result of trauma, tumor removal, or birth-related brachial palsy
  • Breast reinnervation
  • Nerve transfers after the loss of motor function of the upper and lower extremity
  • Nerve decompression and reconstruction for orofacial pain
  • Corneal reinnervation for neurotrophic corneal keratopathy
  • Nerve transfer and functional muscle transfer for facial paralysis
