This picture was taken 6 months after my decompression of the saphenous nerve surgery. I had years of pain and before I could not even walk to my mailbox without pain. They only thing I could do was rest and I am not one to sit around. Now I am trying new things and I went cross country skiing for the first time. Skiing didn’t go that well, but I am learning and having fun. Most important, I had no pain. Thank you Dr. Williams!!!
It has been one year since my decompression of the saphenous nerve surgery and I am enjoying a new active life. About 3 years prior to my surgery, I developed sharp, burning pain in my right thigh that radiated down my leg. I was unable to walk a short distance without pain and over the years got worse to the point that I was unable to stand for 15 minutes. Doctors here in NY tried physical therapy and anti-inflammatory drugs but it did not help. After many negative tests, an EMG finally showed a suspected entrapment to the saphenous nerve. At this point I tried nerve pain medicine, which helped, but I couldn’t handle the side effects. Doctors offered to do an exploratory surgery, but at this point, I really needed to find someone who treated this rare injury.
I found you after months of research and I year ago you performed a decompression of the Saphenous Nerve. I am happy to report I am able to stand and walk without pain. I can now enjoy my gardening that I missed doing for years and for the past couple of months I have been doing Kettlebell workout that involves a lot of squats, something that I could not have done if I didn’t have the surgery. I am so happy I had the surgery. I drove 6 hours for my appointments and would do it again if I had to. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.K.W.
