Q What does external neurolysis mean in nerve surgery?
When a nerve is entrapped or pinched this can cause pain, tingling and other neurological symptoms making your life miserable. External neurolysis is surgery to release, or decompress, the nerve from the surrounding tight tissues causing compression on the nerve and restriction of blood flow to the nerve. Releasing the tissues around the nerve which are causing compression, allows the nerve to move freely, can restore blood flow to the nerve, and help reduce the symptoms of the pinched and entrapped nerve.
If you are suffering from nerve pain and cannot be as active as you would like to be, give Dr. Harvey Danciger in Palm Desert, CA a call to schedule an appointment.
