This patient is only 1 week out from a tarsal tunnel release and decompression of the medial plantar, lateral plantar, and calcaneal nerves. She was told that she had irreversible diabetic neuropathy with numbness and pain. She is surprised to have already noticed substantial improvement in sensation only one week after surgery. We expect this to improve with time.
If you or a person you know suffer from similar pain, Dr. Eric H Williams would be happy to discuss this with you at the Dellon Institute for Peripheral Nerve Surgery in Baltimore, Maryland at 410-337-5400.
