S/P Neuroma Excision

The treatment for peripheral nerve damage is excision (removal) of the damaged nerve (neuroma). To prevent recurrence of the pain, a remaining portion of the nerve is implanted into the muscle. If you had a lot of damage to a main nerve, you might require reconstruction of that nerve. Similarly, if you needed a peripheral nerve tumor removed, you might also require nerve reconstruction. Once the nerve is reconstructed, it recovers approximately a half to one millimeter per day, so please bear in mind that your recovery to the surgery may be delayed, as you recover your function bit by bit.
