Radial Nerve Release Surgery
The brain and spinal cord communicates with what is occurring in the internal organs and limbs by nerve fibers where are like electrical wires with insulation (myelin) and the "copper" (axon). Within brain and spinal cord these nerves connect to other nerves via synapses on both axons and dendrites. A nerve can carry information regarding sensations, and ...Read more
Yes: 98% of patients will get improvement in sensation and most complete recovery. It could take up to 3-4 months, so be patient. It also depends on how much damage you have going into the surgery (based on emg/ncv test).

Is surgery needed for foot drop from anterior tarsal tunnel syndrome (deep peroneal nerve entrapment) from ant tib tenosynovitis from ultrasound burn?

The nerve runs deep as the name implies and hence would not be affected from ultrasound. Entrapment of this nerve would not cause a dropfoot, it usually causes numbness to the first webspace or great toe. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Some additional pain initially, and a bit longer to heal with more restrictions. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
31 yr-old with right wrist fracture via injury Oct. 2015. ORIF & median nerve decompressed. January xray: collapse of distal radial reduction.....?
Unfortunate: If the reduction has been lost, unfortunately you are probably going to need further surgery to get the fracture back in anatomical alignment. The danger in not doing this will be to develop post traumatic arthritis and a poor outcome. You might want to consider a second opinion from a hand specialist before proceeding with a second surgery if it can be obtained quickly. ...Read moreSee 8 more doctor answers
