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 just finished lower back pain treatments. For the first time, in a long time, I can sleep in any position without pain or discomfort. Three injection sessions in L4. Very happy with my Pain Doc (how he is listed in my contacts). Side note, the young lady that checked me in each time was super nice."- D.Z. / Healthgrades / Jul 09, 2022
"I was truly impress with the treatment that was received from Dr. Sridhar Vasireddy. I had issues with my hip for over 6 months and was referred to Dr. Vasireddy. My treatment was a hip injection with sedation. Dr. V., was very detailed in explaining the procedure and the steps he would take. He concentrated on giving me the injection to an area was called “the ring”. I highly recommend Dr. Vasireddy. He is an awesome doctor!"- S.B. / Google / Apr 12, 2022

"I was referred to Dr. Vasireddy by the VA. I could walk only with a walker. After reviewing my MRI, he provided a plan of action with a series of injections and radio ablations. I can now walk nearly as well as prior to my incident. He also was able to provide relief for my popping, painful tailbone. I have had this condition for many years and no one has found the cause until I asked Dr. Vasireddy about it. He knew the problem, did some diagnostic test shots, and then radio ablation that really provided me with instant relief! My pain is now at least 90 % relieved! Thank You Dr. Vasireddy and also your very polite and courteous team."- C.M. / Google / Nov 18, 2021
