Simply put, neuropathy is pain that is caused by damaged nerves. When the nerve fibers are severed or injured due to trauma, accident, or surgery, it can result in long-term damage that causes chronic pain. Even after a full recovery, patients can experience nerve pain weeks or months later. There are several types of neuropathy conditions, but the most common one is peripheral neuropathy. Generally, nerve pain is isolated in the hands and feet but can be present anywhere on the body where there was nerve damage. Popular symptoms of neuropathy include extreme sensitivity to touch, the sensation of pins and needles, muscle weakness, and sudden bouts of sharp pain during physical activities.

"I cannot begin to explain how much Dr. V as helped me over the last year. I came to him at the recommendation of my rheumatologist due to an undiagnosed pain in my lower back. The pain was so intense I was unable to find any comfortable position much less sleep. From my first visit, I realized Dr. V was different. He spent time with me, listened to me, and was genuinely concerned about the ulceration (later diagnosed as lupus panniculitis) on my lower back and the immense pain it was causing. He was able to provide me with immediate relief. After my surgery, his office worked to get me in as soon as possible to adjust my medication. When Dr. V saw me hunched over, barely able to move, and walking with a walker, he told me he would take care of me, and he did. He adjusted my medication, and I was able to return to work when the surgeon released me. Besides his medical knowledge, Dr. V always made me feel that he cared about me as a person not just a patient. I would recommend Dr. V to anyone who is living with pain and wants their life back."- M.H. / Google / Dec 26, 2020
