pain after surgery
experiencing pain after foot, ankle or knee surgery?
what to do when there is pain after surgery
Any kind of pain after surgery can be discouraging to even the most positive individual. Knowing you’re in the right hands can be a huge relief.
The nerve specialists at Next Step Foot and Ankle Clinic continue to take additional steps to continue their education in order to provide the best, up-to-date care available. Both of our doctors, Dr. Silvester & Dr. Larsen are members of The Association of Extremity Nerve Surgeons(AENS), where fellow members around the world have completed focused training and procedures in lower extremity peripheral nerve.
Do you have pain after foot and ankle or knee surgery?
One major cause of complications after surgery in the lower extremity is nerve entrapment (nerve compression) in or near the scar. This can be the cause of much frustration for the doctor and especially the patient.
Some of the common examples we see every week are:
- Pain in the ball of the foot after neuroma surgery
- Pain radiating down the leg to the foot after knee surgery
- Persistent heel pain even after plantar fascia surgery
- Lateral ankle surgery can be a problem as well
Nerves are very sensitive and even a perfect surgery can result in nerve irritation that feels simply miserable.
