Repetitive motion injuries, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, can cause severe pain. When medications and physical therapy fail to provide relief, it may be time to consider surgery. At Sentara, we perform all types of peripheral nerve surgery. Our minimally invasive approach means quicker healing for you.
What is peripheral nerve surgery?
The term "peripheral surgery" refers to nerve surgery of the hands, arms, legs and feet. Peripheral surgery often involves releasing nerves that have become "trapped" by an overlying structure, such as a tendon. Peripheral surgery also can refer to treatment of nerve tumors.
