Peripheral Nerve Surgery
If you are suffering from chronic pain and numbness and are searching for relief and a return to a more active and pain-free life, peripheral nerve surgery could be the procedure that finally restores you to health.
Faith Regional Physician Services’ Peripheral Nerve team comprised of Dr. Demetrio J. Aguila III, Dr. Jason Bailey, and Dr. Zackary Gangwer work closely to provide comprehensive care in diagnosis and surgical outcomes to those suffering from peripheral nerve pain.
Neuropathic pain, commonly known as nerve pain, is typically tied to problems with the nerve. It can cause serious physical problems, including amputations in severe cases. Patients with nerve problems often have a loss of sensation along with pain that can be intense and debilitating. Peripheral neuropathy is highly prevalent among patients with diabetes.
Surgeries are done at Faith Regional Health Services or the Faith Regional Surgery Center. Patients are able to have surgery and go home on the same day. Within 24 to 48 hours, the pain is dramatically better.
