Next Step Foot & Ankle Clinic

I have had about 85% improvement in my burning and tingling and numbness.

I have had neuropathy in my lower extremity secondary to my diabetes for approximately three years. I tried multiple medications without significant lessening of my symptoms. My symptoms consisted mostly of burning shooting tingling pain. I also had significant loss of sensation in both feet. In July 2005 Dr. Silvester suggested that I might obtain some relief from my neuropathy by undergoing a surgery to decompress the nerves in my legs and feet. I had surgery performed on my left foot and leg in August of 2005. The results were so good that I went ahead with the right foot procedure in February of 2006. Since that time I have had about 85% improvement in my burning and tingling and numbness. I also have better balance and much more comfortable. I was very pleased with my results.
