The PODdoctors: Diabetic Neuropathy: What role does Nerve Decompression play?
Dr. Damien Dauphinee, a board-certified foot and ankle surgeon, and Dr. Raafae Hussain, fellowship trained foot and ankle surgeon, start season two of The Pod Doctors podcast talking about diabetic neuropathy and what role nerve decompression plays into it. They discuss what they typically see with patients who have diabetic neuropathy and the various ways to treat it from conservative therapy to surgery.
“I think that’s the restriction nowadays. People are like it’s diabetic neuropathy. There’s no treatment aside from treating the diabeties which is not true.” - Dr. Raafae Hussain [05:33]
“That study is going to be remarkable. It’s going to be groundbreaking, and it already is. And I think the repercussions of it are hopefully that people will take another look at the option of surgical decompression in diabetic neuropathy as something for pain relief, but also sensory restoration and to prevent wounds. I think it can do all of those things.” - Dr. Damien Dauphinee [54:44]
