Nerve Decompression Surgery

Relieve Sharp, Shooting Pain Instantly

If you have a pinched nerve, then you know all too well the intense, shooting pain that causes you incredible discomfort every day. You may have noticed symptoms such as:

  • Sharp pains
  • Numbness
  • Tingling

A compressed nerve is a common injury and can happen in a number of places on your body. Typically, these injuries pop up in areas where nerves are forced to pass through narrow spaces. Some of the most common conditions include:

  • Tennis elbow: When you overuse your arm, it can become inflamed and the nerves are compressed around the elbow.
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome: If you often use your hands to type or for other work, you might be susceptible to compressing the nerve the runs from your wrist to your hand.
  • Peripheral neuropathy: Many people with diabetes have this condition, which affects the nerves in the feet.

Our skillful surgeons at miVIP Las Vegas offer nerve decompression surgery to help alleviate your symptoms.

How Does It Work?

After determining that traditional pain relief methods are not working, your physician may recommend you have nerve decompression surgery. During this process, you will likely only need a local anesthetic, though some patients may be placed under general anesthesia if it is merited. To get a closer look the nerve, your surgeon will insert a very small arthroscopic camera through small incisions.

Your doctor can then cut any tendons that are placing pressure on the nerve to provide you relief. You may need only surgical tape to close the incisions, though sometimes a few stitches are necessary.
