A follow-up to a prior procedure provides lasting relief for a patient.
Sometimes a second procedure is necessary. A patient discusses her results following a nerve revision surgery.
She is two months out from surgery and has 75% relief of her previous burning pain.
This patient had residual knee pain after knee surgery. This patient had severe pain in the medial (inside) of the knee due to an injury of the saphenous nerve and the infrapatellar branch of the saphenous nerve. She is two months out from surgery and has 75% relief of her previous burning pain.
I no longer have the intensity of pain nor am I in constant pain.
I have had knee pain for the past few years. I had an arthroscopic procedure done, cortisone shot, and synvisc. Nothing worked. The pain made me feel like crying on a daily basis. As a last resort before total knee replacement, I was given the name of Dr. Williams for peripheral nerve surgery. While I still have some pain, I no longer have the intensity of pain nor am I in constant pain. It has made a significant positive difference. Dr. Williams is personable and made me feel very comfortable. I would recommend to those in a similar situation to see Dr. Williams for a consult to see if this procedure would benefit them as it has me. Thank you!
He is now walking 5 km a day!
This patient is now 4 months out from a RIGHT knee denervation and 6 weeks out from a LEFT knee denervation. Prior to our procedure the patient had been suffering from severe knee pain. His pain was particularly aggravated when walking down stairs or after sitting for a lengthy time period. After our procedure the patient reports that his knee pain is decreasing on a daily basis. He is now walking 5 km a day!
Following our operation she experienced immediate pain relief
This patient had two procedures performed. The first procedure relieved her medial knee pain and the most recent procedure relieved her lateral knee pain. She is now three months out from her second procedure -- a decompression of the common peroneal nerve. Following our operation she experienced immediate pain relief and is now able to stand and walk without feeling the pressure that previously existed in the knee and leg.
She is able to walk more comfortably and bend her knee.
The patient had 4 years of severe chronic knee after her knee replacement. She is one month out from surgery a resection of the medial retinacular nerve, a branch to the medial knee. This is an unnecessary nerve that provide sensation to the knee joint. She has had tremendous relief of her pain. She is able to walk more comfortably and bend her knee. About 3-5% of all patients with knee replacement will have severe pain after replacement. Many of them will respond to removing these nerves.
