Surgery for Nerve

If surgery is the best treatment option for you, you will likely have one of the following types of surgery: nerve repair, nerve graft, nerve transfer, neurolysis or tendon transfer. Again, your specialist will talk with you about the treatment best suited to your condition.

When there is more extensive injury and the nerve ends can’t be reconnected, a surgery called nerve graft may be a more suitable option. In a nerve graft, a small piece of donor nerve is used to bridge the gap between the two nerve ends; the damaged nerve will then regenerate across the graft to provide recovery.
