Although peripheral nerve injuries do not typically compromise the viability of the affected limb, they can gravely compromise its functionality. That is why, if you do not receive the correct treatment in a timely manner, the consequences to your health and overall quality of life can be dire.
These injuries can be the consequence of a very diverse group of etiologies, such as incised or blunt injuries, nerve traction, nerve compression, and ischemia. Fortunately, in the last century, our knowledge about neuroanatomy, neurophysiology, and axonal regeneration has increased substantially; and, currently, with the development and improvement of advanced surgical techniques, the safety and efficacy of peripheral nerve interventions have increased.
Here at Neuropax Clinic, our vision is to become leaders in creating a health care delivery platform that works more effectively for patients suffering from chronic pain, peripheral diabetic neuropathy, carpal tunnel, tarsal tunnel, chronic migraines/headaches, cubital tunnel, radial tunnel, and other serious complications related to peripheral nerve damage.
We fulfill this vision by offering proven, advanced surgical techniques such as Nerve Decompression Surgical Procedures to help patients stop suffering and reclaim their quality of life.
Our nerve decompression procedures are minimally invasive and use state-of-the-art surgical techniques that provide substantial relief from the most debilitating symptoms of nerve damage caused by pinched or entrenched nerves.
Most of our patients come to us, reporting debilitating numbness, pain, and, in severe cases, full loss of function. They also report that conventional treatments have been entirely unsuccessful in providing them with lasting and meaningful relief.
It is precisely these patients who will benefit the most from the expertise offered by Neuropax Clinic staff. Neuropax Clinic is the St. Louis Leader for Carpal Tunnel, Headache Surgery, Nerve Compression, and Chronic Joint Pain treatment.
We regularly perform nerve compression surgery of the upper extremities to treat carpal tunnel, cubital tunnel, and decompression of the radial nerve. Up to 6% of the general adult population reports symptoms that suggest the presence of some degree of carpal, cubital, and radial nerve compression.
We can also perform decompression surgery of nerves in the back, side, and front of the head to treat chronic migraine headaches. It is estimated that more than 14% of the world’s population suffers from recurring migraines during their lifetime.
Finally, we perform nerve decompression surgery of the lower extremities to provide relief to our patients that suffer from diabetic neuropathy. It is believed that an astounding 50% of the adult diabetic population suffers from some form of peripheral neuropathy depending on factors such as age, type of diabetes, etc. These patients present with highly variable symptomatology that makes conventional treatment extremely ineffective for the vast majority of patients.
The high incidence of these injuries and the high number of debilitating side effects associated with them make them a substantial public health concern. Providing satisfactory treatment with an acceptable functional prognosis is our goal, here at Neuropax clinic.
