Testimonials: Thigh Pain
- Page 1
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.K.W.
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.
