This patient had severe pain the right leg that limited her daily activity. She could hardly stand to touch the top of the foot and the toes. She had numbness and pain in the sole of the foot and could not wiggle her toes. We performed a revision decompression of the common peroneal nerve after this had been performed by another physician, we removed two sensory nerves to the top of the foot (the superficial and deep peroneal nerve), and we decompressed the proximal tibial nerve at the soleal sling in the back of the calf. This resulted in complete pain relief to the top of the foot, while making the top of the foot numb, and complete pain relief in the bottom of the foot while restoring normal sensation to the sole of the foot and improving her muscle function. She is ticklish, and she is quite pleased. She reports 100% improvement.
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) 709-3868
