THE MEANING OF THE SYMBOLS IN THE LOGO
FOR THE THE DELLON INSTITUTES FOR PERIPHERAL NERVE SURGERY™
At the top, the 12 O’clock position, is a finger having its sensibility testing with the Pressure-Specified Sensory Device™. This painless testing is done on the hands and feet to evaluate peripheral nerve function, to learn if the nerve is compressed, or injured, or if it is recovering from surgery.
At the right, the 3 O’clock position is a footprint of a small animal, that represents basic science research on the peripheral nerve. The footprint is obtained by placing the foot into water color paint, and allowing the animal to walk on paper. The footprint shape can be measured to identify peripheral nerve problems.
At the bottom, the 6 O’clock position, is a book, representing scientific publications of the research from the Dellon Institutes.
At the left, the 9 O’clock position, is a pair of “surgical microscope glasses” or “loupes”, that are worn by the surgeon doing microneurosurgery on the peripheral nerve.
In the center of the logo, is a myelinated nerve fiber, with the black representing the myelin, the insulated covering that permits electrical transmission of the nerve impulse, from the central axon, the actual part of the neural tissue.
