Peripheral Nerve Surgery
Neuropathy literally means “disease of the nerve” in Greek. The nerve can be become diseased in several different ways, generally causing similar symptoms including numbness, tingling and often burning pain.
Often, neuropathy patients are told by their medical doctor that they have to live with the disease, that they should take something for the burning pain and that nothing can be done for them. Too often, treatable options are not explored, patients eventually lose sensation in their feet and frequently suffer the consequences by developing ulcers, followed by toe and foot amputations.
At the Swier Clinic we have a different approach. We do a thorough investigation to find the cause of the nerve dysfunction and whether it can be reversed with surgery.
At the Swier Clinic we treat a large number of patients with skin cancer. Skin cancers like basal cell carcinomas, squamous cell carcinomas and melanomas are removed usually in the office using local anesthesia and sometimes some sedation.
Sometimes it takes 2 or 3 resections until all the margins are free of tumor. Following the resections the wound is reconstructed. Reconstructions include simple, intermediate or complex closures, local tissue rearrangements, local flaps or even skin grafts. Reconstructions are generally performed the same day that the cancer was removed. The entire process generally takes 1–2 hours per lesion, but is a little unpredictable since reconstructions cannot be performed until all the margins are free of tumor.
