Identifying Nerve Pain in the Leg & Foot

Lower extremity nerve pain, or weakness associated with nerve dysfunction is experienced by people of all demographic backgrounds. It most often occurs in middle age or later individuals. It can also be the result of injury that happened earlier in life. Many times it is related to an underlying metabolic disease such as diabetes, thyroid conditions, etc.

There are a number of causes of lower leg and foot nerve pain. Often, these common problems go undiagnosed or misdiagnosed because symptoms can be so varied, and because the onset of symptoms is sometimes very slow

Treatment & Surgery Options

Our doctors specialize in many advanced minimally and non-invasive treatments, and IF NECCESSARY, surgical techniques with patient proven success stories.

If your nerve pain is not responding to conservative treatments, Nerve Decompression Surgery may be an option.

Decompression surgery reduces the pressure on the nerve causing pain, cutting some of the ligaments near the bones.

In other cases, your medical team removes the nerve or tumor causing the pain. After your surgery, you may still experience numbness, but the pain subsides.

When other non-operative treatments fail and compression of the nerve is playing a role in the nerve dysfunction, surgery may be the best option. Sometimes nerve disease is like sleeping on your elbow wrong. You wake up and your hand is numb or tingling. The nerve is just always being compressed.

Nerve decompression surgery allows the surgeon to open the tight area through which the nerves pass by, dividing the anatomical structures that encase the nerve.

Surgical procedures can be performed in the comfort of our Olympia Surgery Center located next door.

Our doctors have additional certifications in nerve surgery. They have undergone specialized training in the treatment of painful nerve conditions.

The organization called The Association of Extremity Nerve Surgeons (AENS) provides advanced training in the medical, physiological, and surgical treatment of nerve conditions. Through this organization and other ongoing medical education, Dr. Silvester and Dr. Larsen chose to specialize in the treatment of these difficult and perplexing conditions.

Dr. Silvester achieved adequate surgical experience and demonstrated proficiency in the procedure, and is now a Fellow of the Association of Extremity Nerve Surgeons.

Electrical Signal Therapy (EST) is a treatment program for patients who suffer with diabetic and peripheral neuropathy and other chronic pain issues found in their feet and ankles.

The neoGEN-Series® signal energy waves, along with associated harmonic resonance frequencies, are used to physiologically imitate, exhaust or block certain functions of the amacrine, somatic or sympathetic nerve fibers for comprehensive patient treatment success.

The neoGEN-Series® system is a state-of-the art, technically-innovative medical device for producing electric cell signaling energy waves (EST and ESI). The system is used to successfully treat circulatory issues, all types of acute and chronic pain, long-term (intractable) pain and drug-resistant pain.
