When you've grown tired of living with pain and being told that medication may be your only answer, you have the option to consider a major surgery like nerve decompression. It's important to research and choose the best possible doctor for the job. Not all doctors know about nerve decompression surgery as a treatment, even though there is ample evidence that it is highly effective. Some doctors will only prescribe medication as an option for a compressed nerve. Dr. Williams has experience with nerve decompression surgery and can determine if it is the right option for you.
