  • 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.

      03/25/2013: 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!!!     08/12/2013: 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.

  • She has had excellent improvement in her pain.

    This patient struggled for 3 years with severe pain in the right lateral thigh. We diagnosed that she had a nerve compression (pinched nerve) in the thigh called the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. This nerve was decompressed through a small 2 inch incision by the hip. This is her one year anniversary. She has had excellent improvement in her pain.

  • Meralgia Paresthetica - Thigh Pain Resolved

    Patient is 6 months from a removal of the left lateral femoral cutaneous nerve. He had intense pain in the left thigh for months after a hip replacement. He has had a wonderful improvement in his pain from removing this nerve. He is now back to his everyday activities with out pain. We could not be happier.

  • Incredible response to surgery dropping her pain levels from a 9 to 1 on her pain scale.

    This patient is 3 months out from decompression of the lateral femoral cutaneous nerve at the lateral thigh for a nerve compression here causing pain, numbness, and burning down the lateral thigh to the knee (meralgia paresthetica). She has had an incredible response to surgery dropping her pain levels from a 9 to 1 on her pain scale. Needless to say, we are both delighted.
