Dr. Williams' Patient Has Great Relief of Pain in the Groin
This patient is now 6 weeks post from groin denervation with resection of the ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerve. She is very pleased with the relief of pain in the groin.
Pain After Hernia Repair Resolved
This patient had over a year of pain in the groin and testicle after hernia repair. We reomoved the ilioinguinal, iliohypogastric, and genitofemoral nerve laparoscopically and decompressed the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. He has had essentially complete resolution of his pain. The "elephant" is gone! These nerves do not affect sexual function.
Dr. Williams Relieves Baltimore Patient's Two Years of Groin Pain After Hernia Repair
This patient had pain for 2 years after an inguinal hernia repair that radiated into her groin and pubic region. We removed several sensory nerves to the groin including the ilioinguinal, iliohypogastric, and genital branch the genitofemoral nerve. The patient has done very well with this operation. These nerves do not affect sexual function. Her pain which used to be in the 7-8 range has now dropped to a 1-2. She has been able to stop all her medications and resume her previous activities that she has not been able to enjoy for over 2 years. We are both delighted with her outcome.
He is now much happier, with near complete resolution of his groin and testicular pain.
Patient is 3.5 months from denervation of the right groin by removing the ilioinguinal, iliohypogastric, and genitofemoral nerve. This patient had an inguinal hernia repair and unfortunately has terrible groin and testicular pain following the otherwise successful repair. Wearing clothing was painful and intimacy with his wife nearly impossible. He is now much happier, with near complete resolution of his groin and testicular pain. Removing these nerves does not affect sexual function -- unless it makes it better because his pain is gone.
Groin Pain Gone!
I learned a lot caring for this young lady. She is a very courageous woman who had pain severe enough in both of her groins that she could no longer make it through her school classes and had dropped out of classes. It turns out that we believe her pain was from injuries that occurred to these nerves as she was moved back and forth from her wheel chair. We took out both the ilioinguinal and iliohypogastric nerve on both sides of her pelvis through small incisions. She is now back in classes, off all of her medications, and doing well. We could not be more pleased.
Groin and Thigh Pain Gone
This patient is 3 months from groin denervation. She suffered for 4 years of chronic pain in the groin and lateral thigh after a hysterectomy. Several nerves were caught in scar tissue from this operation that caused severe pain and disability. We removed the RIGHT ilioinguinal, iliohypogastric, genitofemoral, and lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. None of these nerves affect sexual function. All of these nerves are unnecessary. They all traveled to the skin and provide sensation to a portion of the groin and lateral thigh. She is now completely off her narcotic medications, and her pain levels have improved from an 8 to 0-1. Proof that sometimes it is okay to lose your nerve.
