Foot and Ankle Surgeons of Oklahoma is a leader in treating nerve generated pain or damage as it relates to the lower extremities. This often includes treating patients who have been told nothing can be done for them.
Damaged nerves can be the result of a disease (diabetes), injury, infection, growths, environment issues, medicines or a genetic predisposition. Nerves that are affected by swelling or compression are often the result of a tumor or inflammation of the area around the nerve. Conditions such as Morton’s neuroma or tarsal tunnel syndrome can also place nerves in the feet under extreme pressure.
As varied as the causes, the telltale signs and symptoms of painful or damaged nerves span from weak muscles to extreme pain, with many in between. If any of the following symptoms occur in addition to muscle pain, it may signify nerve trouble:
- Pain that doesn’t go away
- Sharp or dull “shooting” sensation, or an electric shock shooting up or down the leg
- Muscle weakness in the area of the pain
- Extreme sensitivity to hot or cold
- The feeling of walking on a little rock
- Numbness between toes
- The feeling of tingling or burning on the bottom of the foot
The Foot and Ankle Surgeons of Oklahoma offers diagnosis and treatment for a wide range of orthopedic injuries and conditions, including nerve surgery. Our team of orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists and athletic trainers are committed to helping patients find relief and return to the highest level of activity possible.
Once conservative measures have been exhausted, nerve surgery may be recommended as the best course of action to relieve pressure and restore your feet. During the procedure, the nerve will be preserved by expanding the area around it. This is called a release, primarily because the nerve is being released from the pressure that caused the symptoms initially.

"DR. GREEN SAVED MY FOOT! His care, knowledge and straight to the point of how I needed to take care of myself, saved my right foot with just about 6 more months of care, medicine, surgery, and discipline. Dr. Green has to be most reliable and knowledgeable doctor I have ever worked with. ". – Philip Brooks
"After months of ankle pain, I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Green after he was highly recommended by a friend. Dr. Green took the time to get to know me and listen to my concerns. He diagnosed my condition quickly and talked through several treatment options to eliminate my pain. I wish I would’ve made an appointment sooner! The entire staff was so friendly and I was in and out in no time!". – Brad
"I needed quite a complex treatment and Dr. Jones did a fantastic job. From my first appointment to my last, everyone in the office was so nice and helpful, and I never waited very long at all! A physical therapist I saw a few weeks after surgery was genuinely impressed with Dr. Jones' work. Highly recommend!". – Andrew
