How do I know if surgery is right for me?

Our surgeons consider a variety of factors when deciding which treatment is best for you. Here are some questions to discuss with your doctor:

When did the injury occur?

Older injuries are still treatable, but options may be limited.

What symptoms are you experiencing?

Symptoms can help define the extent and location of the injury.

How much of the nerve is damaged?

Longer areas of damaged nerves take more time to heal. 

What outcomes are possible?

Innovative, evidence-based techniques ensure realistic but impactful results.

Dr. Tuffaha

We work with patients to understand how these injuries affect their day to day — and guide them toward the treatment that fits their lives.”
