What is Peripheral Nerve Surgery?
Peripheral Nerve Surgery is performed to treat peripheral nerve injuries (due to trauma, surgery, childbirth, etc) tumors and other disorders that affect the network of nerves linking the brain and spinal cord to other parts of the body.
Indications for Peripheral Nerve Surgery
Any kind of peripheral nerve surgery is aimed to restore sensation, movement and motor skills of the body. The major nerve disorders that can be repaired by surgery include:
- Brachial plexus injury
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Foot drop injury
- Major peripheral nerve injury
- Malignant nerve sheath tumors
- Meralgia paresthetica
- Nerve injuries
- Nerve compressions and entrapments
- Nerve tumors
- Spinal accessory nerve injury
- Tarsal tunnel syndrome
- Thoracic outlet syndrome
- Traumatic nerve injury
- Ulnar nerve entrapment
- Iatrogenic injury
Treatment of Peripheral Nerve Injury?
Dr. Sachin Mahajan is best neurosurgeons use innovative techniques to treat brachial plexus injuries and other peripheral nerve injuries. To restore your nerve health, we may use one of the following techniques:
- Nerve grafting. An injury can cause a gap in a nerve that prevents it from working appropriately. During a nerve graft, your neurosurgeon takes part in a nerve from another area of your body or from a donor and attaches it to the injured nerve. The nerve graft can help restore function in the damaged nerve.
- Nerve transfer. For a nerve transfer surgery, your neurosurgeon connects a nearby working nerve to the injured nerve. Over time, the brain will learn how to use the new nerve to perform the functions of the old, injured nerve.
