    Dr. Towfigh – Neurectomy

    Thank you Doctor.

    I am encouraged to know that surgical neurectomy is an option, albeit a last option. From my research, the data seem to indicate that neurectomy is less successful when the genitofemoral nerve is the source of neuropathy. This is a bit discouraging to me since I’m certain that this nerve is the cause of problems. However, perhaps I’ve interpreted the data wrong. Do you feel that surgical neurectomy can be successful in patients in whom the genitofemoral nerve is the source of pain?

    Sorry if I’m asking too many questions. I’m just trying to get a handle on things.
