Hey. That is me on my new motorbike. It is 26 months since you did my surgery. I was unable to sit prior to your surgery on my posterior femoral and pudendal nerves. Now look at me, age 65, riding the mountain lake region of Italy, where I live. Mille Grazie Dr Dellon. MR


Two years ago you operated on my pudendal nerve and I continue to do great. Able to work. On no medication.
Here is the newest member of our family, our little dog. I can play with him and walk him without any problems. Thank you Dr. Dellon.  M

I am a sophomore in college now Dr Dellon. Life is so good. No more pelvic pain thanks to that operation you did 3 years ago. Thank you so much. MB

Here I am holding my 3rd child. It is 4 years since you operated on me. Back then I never would have thought, with my level of groin pain, that I would ever be able to return to a normal job, be free of pain and watch my family grow. By the way, I am now a Police Officer with full function. Thank you Dr. Dellon for the surgery you did. MS

Here is a picture of me with my family. Intercourse was never painful. After surgeries and recovery, intercourse is still not painful. All thing pretty normal there. I’m still weaning off medication and hoping that continues to go well.


I can now squat and play with my son again. None of that original “perineal” pain remains. It is one year since surgery. Thanks Dr. Dellon.

It was five years ago this month that I was unable to sit and had problems with my right leg, and then you did that operation on several nerves at the same time. My husband is next to me in this picture. Note I can now even sit on a swing. My  life is so improved and thanks to you. KB

It is now 8 months since my surgery with you Dr. Dellon. As you can see, my groin pain and pudendal nerve problems are gone. I am back to gardening and heavy hobbies such as carpentry and wood carving. Thanks so much for solving these problems for me which have been with me since my wartime injury.


Dear Dr. Dellon and Luiann,
Words cannot express how grateful I am for you.  Over the past five years, I have been suffering from extreme, debilitating sitting pain which turned out to be a neuroma of my right PFCN.  I am four months post op and I am pain FREE! I am now able to sit, drive and return to work. Look at us on vacation in Cape Cod! We ate, drank, danced, dined, walked, and swam.  My husband, family, and I thank you both from the bottom of our hearts! You have forever changed my life. Gretchen from CT

One year ago, Dr. Dellon, before you operated on me, I was disabled due to years of pelvic pain. In the photos below you will see my progress; I received a sports “letter” in swimming at my high school and attended the prom. I can ride motor cars at the beach. My life is back and I am so thankful. NB

My Mom, on the right, is 72 and the pudendal (pelvic) pain she has suffered ever since I was born, has been such a load for her (and me) to bare. After your surgery, 7 months ago, removing the pudendal nerve branches stuck in that episiotomy scar, she has been a new woman. Look at that smile. We look like sisters. Thanks Dr. Dellon. CB

pudendal nerve pain

It has been 9 weeks since my pudendal nerve surgery with you Dr. Dellon. I just wanted to tell you how grateful I am to you. As you can see in this picture I am sitting on a hard bench and I have jeans on. (I am on the right) I haven't been able to sit for over 3 years without pain and haven't worn jeans in over 2. The last 2 weeks have been huge healing weeks as my pain is almost completley gone. My life has been nothing but pain for over 3 years, i have started to work out again, go out with friends, work, laugh and love again. I went to dozens of other doctors and specialists who misdiagnosed my problem and put me on drugs that did nothing. After doing a lot of research I finally found you and after my initial office visit you were able to diagnose me and told me that the surgery would fix me. You did not let me down. I am forever grateful and would recommend you and your surgery to anyone with a similar problem. Julia

pudendal nerve pain

Hello Dr. Dellon,

I am back to work and sitting comfortably again. My family and I will forever be grateful to you for relieving me of the severe pain of pudendal neuromas. Luckily, my brother Jim found your practice on line and convinced me to call you. His words were "you have gotta get it done". I called your office on a Friday night and talked to Luiann and she assured me you would help me. She was right! Less than 12 hours later we were exchanging emails and within two weeks I was flying out for a consultation. Luiann and your office staff offered me a room to lay down as I waited for my appointment because I could not sit for more than 10 seconds. You patiently listened to my story and confidently told me I had bilateral neuromas of the perineal branches of the Pudendal nerve. You and Luiann told me I would feel better soon. Thank God, I listened to both of you! I was amazed I could sit right after surgery. Dr. Dellon when you visited me the following day I wasn't ready to celebrate. I had been to countless doctors prior and didn't want to get my hopes up. When I returned home after surgery you continued to return my emails answering my questions and Luiann asked me many times how I was feeling. The warm water walking you prescribed aided in my recovery and my new 70, 80, and 90 year old friends cheered me along. Dr. Dellon, you gave me my life back!! I am an active person and look forward to skiing, skating, hiking and doing all the fun activities I did before being injured. I wont have to take medication to bandaid the problem or have unnecessary other surgeries. I am free and alive and happy!! Thanks again Dr. Dellon!!

I have been able to consummate the act without chemical support and feel confident of being able to do that now too. The regular spontaneous erections I might have experienced through the day still elude me (maybe not be a bad thing as I can get on with my work) but I am feeling improved sensitivity all the time.

After my bike injury and prior to surgery, I experienced a sort of complete disconnect and often felt I had a completely useless penis with reduced sensation. This as you will appreciate was very frustrating and worrying. There always was some functionality. Now after you operated and decompressed the dorsal and perineal branches of my pudendal nerve on both the left and right sides, I feel more potent and confident now and whilst not back to full form quite yet I am much happier . I am really encouraged with the progress especially in the last 10 days. There is a daily improvement which is seemingly accelerating. I do awake with some impressive erections and when I am awake I get them whether stimulated physically, visually or with close contact with my partner. They are very satisfactory. I think you've fixed me Dr Dellon. From the UK

It is a year and a half since you operated on me for both groin pain and pudendal nerve pain. I had an awesome past weekend with my husband and girls at Dorney Park Amusement, which is a huge amusement park around here with tons of ridiculous rollercoasters that I would have never gotten on prior to surgery. I am also in my second season of co-ed competitive softball with my husband once a week since April. I would never be where I am without your help and successful surgeries.

After my pudendal nerve surgery with you 9 months ago , Dr Dellon, I am pretty much back to the normal Mother I was prior to my accident. I have no more groin or pelvic or thigh pain. I can sit on my tush on a hard chair for dinner which I could not do for the past five years. Here I am playing with my children. Note I am sitting on the floor!

My name is Tracie G. I live in Tennessee. after 6 years of suffering excruciating pain. I was referred to Dr. Dellon to help me with pain that 16 other doctors said did not exist. They said that the pain was in my head. I could not sit , stand , walk or rest, ever. Some days I wondered why I was even still here.
My poor husband and family had to go through every single day with me that way. Needless to say, I wasn't myself anymore due to impingements of my pudendal nerve, and my sciatic nerve.

I suffered burning, like lightning, in my genitals , my pelvis and inner thighs.

Dr. Dellon diagnosed the added impingements of the clunial nerve , genitofemoral nerves, and the illoinguinal nerves.

After surgeries with Dr. Dellon, and his wonderful staff, I am able to be alive again, with no pain.

I am able to enjoy all the little things that most people take for granted again.

He saved my life.

God helped me get better by working through Dr. Dellon. and his special gifts and talents have been my saving grace.
I actually got to attend one of my dearest friends grand opening at his salon, with the special appearance by Carson Kressley. It was a great day for me. Thank you so much Dr. Dellon.

I am able to smile again.



Tracie G.

I have had pain for 10 1/2 years until I went to see Dr. Dellon.

It started out thinking I had a yeast or vaginal infection with burning and itching. I went to see my gynecologist and he proved me wrong with the cultures he took.

He sent me to see a Dr. Krumholz who specialized in the cervix and vulva. He told me I had Vulvodynia and I took it from there. At least I was able to have someone pinpoint what I had. He wanted to do some kind of surgical procedure right away! I ran from him.

I then spent my years going to Drs. all over the country. I saw a Dr Robert Moldwin ( urologist), Dr. Elizabeth Stewart/ Boston, Dr. Renney and his team in Houston, Dr. Mark Conway in New Hampshire, Drs. in New York and on and on.

The surgeons recommended surgery, but they wanted to cut into the muscle and tissue in order to get to the pudendal nerve. They all said it will be a long recovery , but none of them kept good records. How can you perform a surgery and not follow it up? So, I was out of their     offices.

I had procedures done and took all kinds of medical tests for years. I have suffered this disease for 10 1/2 years and in those years I had Nerve Blocks ( both by palpation and through a Cat Scan.) I had test after test from all the Drs. I saw. I saw Physical Therapists, Psychologists,hypnotists, acupuncture,  mega amounts of medicines, including large amounts of Opiods every day. I had 3 D & C's , 2 manually, and one surgically, where polyps were found and taken out.

I had two Latency tests which were not exactly comfortable, but the both Drs. who took those tests said I was definitely a candidate for the  surgery where they cut through the muscle and tissue in order to get to the nerve. I had so many tests, and took so much drugs, I can't       remember 1/2 of them!

All I know is no matter what I did or who I went to see,( these  were the best Drs. in this country), but not one of them could help me! 10 years of suffering 24/7.

My gynecologist, Dr. Deborah Coady specializes in all kinds of vaginal diseases. She coincidentally met Dr. Dellon at an IPPS conference this year. He specializes in nerves. She spoke to him about me and some other women from her practice, and he told her to send me       to see him.  She had a lot of confidence in him, and advised me to see him.  For the first time in all of these years, I started to feel positive.

I went to see him in Baltimore. Both my husband and myself liked him very much and he gave us a positive feeling of trust. I made an appointment that day to have the surgery done in a few months.

I had the operation, and finally, after all of these years, I feel at least 80% better and it's has only been 4 months since the surgery.

This was fate - it was just meant to be. After all of the other doctors and their high reputations, there medications, their blocks, recommendations, etc. No one was able to help me except Dr. Dellon!

I would recommend him in a minute. He really knows how to work on nerves ( which is a very delicate operation), and even though I feel 80% better now, I have faith that it will still get better than this. This is a nerve that was compressed for many years, so I feel it is normal to take longer to heal.

Dr. Dellon's method of surgery was wonderful, and now I walk around with a smile on my face again!

Actress returns to her own one-woman show off-Broadway following pudendal nerve surgery by Dr Dellon.






It is just 7 weeks since my pudendal nerves were released through your vertical transgluteal lower incisions, and I am doing quite well. I am more and more active as each day passes. I especially love the fact that walking is no longer painful for me as it was prior to surgery! I am not having an y ano-rectal nerve pain--and just that has made such a difference in how I feel about life!!

I've been spending more and more time in the garden, which is my joy. I have probably been doing more bending and squatting than I should. Often the next day I have more pain due to that, but sometimes I just can't help myself. I think in general, the more active I am, within reas on, the better I feel.

I still have tenderness over some areas of the incisions when I press deeply or even when I touch the areas lightly. I also have tenderness over parts of the ischial tuberosities when I press deeply. The right side, as always, is worse than the left. But even all that is getting better I think, and it may be that I'll be able to start sitting at some point for short periods of time.

I have started a slow taper off my drugs. All good news.

L from Portsmouth

A world of gratitude for your personal attention, Dr Dellon, to both my case and the next chapter in my life.Your insight into what I needed to do to recover is inspirational. My pudendal nerve pain is clearly improving. It is three months since the surgery I am back to work as a photographer, and enjoying life with my family again.



Tracy is able to sit again after pudendal nerve decompression by Dr Dellon. Her problem likely started from gymnastic and dancing injuries. She has had pain for four previous years. She is now 4 months since Dr Dellon's neurolysis of the pudendal nerve through a posterior approach and can sit again without the previous pain or pudendal nerve symptoms.

Can’t thank you enough 😘

Hi, my name is Sabrina Shelden, a 23 year old farm girl and midwifery student from Alaska. Here’s my story on how Dr. Dellon has helped me. 
  My left foot didn’t grow right as a child, by age 17 I had to have major foot reconstructive surgery to realign my very misaligned foot which was giving me significant pain. The surgery was successful in realigning the bone structure, but left me with more severe pain than before, probably from nerve damage and/or tightness from the drastic change of foot position. I struggled for years after with pain with every step, so bad that I struggled just to perform normal daily activities. I have always been a very active person who loves the outdoors, but often, days were so bad that I didn’t even want to get out of bed and struggled with depression. Most of the time, people didn’t know how much I was suffering because I tried to hide it and be cheerful and positive, but deep inside I felt like crying all the time. The pain would often get so bad that I would break out in a cold sweat. I began seriously considering amputation, but didn’t like what I found out about it; it definitely wasn’t “the answer” as it has many complications of its own. 
  My wonderful, supportive mother was desperate to get me help. When we went to see more than one doctor, all they wanted to do was fuse my foot or undo the reconstructive surgery, all things that would only cause further damage/strain to my foot and already sensitive nerves. I knew that it would only make the problem worse. Different injections I tried didn’t help me either. 
While doing research, she came across Dr Dellon’s work of nerve denervation and contacted him to see if he would help. He said he thought he could help, so we traveled all the way from our home in Alaska to see him. He was understanding and really seems to care about helping people get out of pain. (his wife Luiann who helps him is super nice as well:) He then performed nerve blocks to try to identify which nerves were the problem. It turned out that almost every nerve to my foot was giving me pain. I wasn’t that surprised...
  During the ensuing surgeries, Dr. Dellon quickly realized how complicated my foot was when he found that my nerves were not all even in the normal location expected. But he persevered, and was finally able to locate and remove the problem nerves. After recovering, I have had a huge improvement in my pain. So many areas on my foot that were very painful are finally gone! I wouldn’t say I’m pain free, because I still have pain in the only nerve that can’t be removed because it’s a function nerve, but the improvement I’ve had in the other areas has been such a lifesaver. I’ll never have a perfect foot because of it being reconstructed, but Dr Dellon has helped make life a lot more bearable for me. There were many times when another nerve showed to be problematic and I had to tell him about it, that I feared he was going to throw his hands up in frustration and give up on me; but no, he was always willing to help and get to the bottom of it. I really appreciate all he’s done for me. 
If you are struggling with chronic pain and are looking into this option, I would be happy to discuss with you my experience with the surgeries/ what to expect with the recovery if you would like. If you want to speak with me about my experience, just ask Dr. Dellon for my contact information

I can use my leg quite well now doing farm work, as you can see here, me driving tractor on the farm.
You have given me great relief and hope for the future by operating on my painful foot. Thanks Dr. Dellon. SS

Here are some pictures of me competing in a mud run to support cancer research in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada.

debpcs2 deb wirth post op


Naïve, reluctant, and stubborn I refused to accept this as my fate. When I was fourteen years old pain was a part of my every day life. Multiple doctors suggested that giving up the thing I loved the most was the only solution to my pain. I was told that if I did not quit figure skating, my feet would be ruined to the point where one day walking would be a challenge. With my mom by my side I visited more doctors, tried absurd home remedies, and researched online, but nothing seemed to help. “Over use” and rest ware not acceptable answers. Headstrong and persistent I continued to skate.

Skating led me to Fairfax, Virginia where I trained in the summer and on school vacations with a coach that lived there. There is where I met another skater, Anna Madorsky, in the summer of 2010 who had struggled with injuries a few years prior. By her suggestion I made an appointment with a doctor in Baltimore. Although skeptical, I was hoping for a new perspective, hopefully one that offered answers. After six hours in Dr. Dellon’s office, sitting through tests, poking and prying exactly where it hurt, he came to a verdict, something no other doctor I had seen was able to do. Less than a week after the initial appointment, I headed back to Baltimore to have surgery on my foot.

Dr. Dellon was an atypical doctor to say the least. Of the six hours I spent in his office, I was not just waiting to see him or confused as to what he had to say. In this short period of time he got to know me as an individual, not just my injury. He continued to email, call, and check up on me after I had traveled back home to Cary. The following year I returned to Baltimore for a second surgery. He stayed in touch just as he had the first time making sure I was doing well, and answering any questions that came about.

Still, I did not fully realize how outstanding of a man Dr. Dellon was, or what a true friend I had gained until over a year after my most recent surgery. He contacted me not to check on my foot or see if I was better, but to see how life was going. Dr. Dellon impacted my life more than just helping me regain my physicality and ability to skate. His goal is not to just fix the problem, but rather to help and encourage the person that is stuck. Because of him I know now that in what ever I decide do I want to help people. I want my schooling and work to provide me with the opportunity to enhance other’s lives as Dr. Dellon did to mine. I want to be able to give other people hope and have them find a friend in me as he did and continues to do.

High school senior able to run on relay team after peroneal palsy and foot pain reversed by Dr Dellon's surgery.

Young woman with chronic refractory ankle and foot pain after seemingly simple ankle sprain. She was diagnosed with compression of the superficial peroneal nerve in the leg due to a stress – traction type injury from the ankle sprain. She has excellent recovery with relief of her pain and better sensation after surgery by Dr. Eric Williams.


Dear Dr. Dellon:
Its been 10 years since you operated on me and in honor of your surgeries, I wanted to explain what I went through before I met you and provide an update on my current condition.
I had an injury that included a very painful sprained ankle and torn ligament.  Additionally, there was nerve damage and I was diagnosed with RSD.  I was treated by several doctors who also worked with the professional football players in my city and after 7 nerve blocks these doctors told me that I would never walk again.  I was told to buy a wheel chair, that I would be on a fentanyl pump and would remain in horrible pain for the rest of my life. 
As you know, I refused to buy a wheel chair and the doctors proceeded to fire me as a patient! A neurologist continued to see me but my treating physicians would not.  I decided to attempt to rehab myself in a pool and after 3 months, could walk short distances without crutches.  I had been unable walk for total of 10 months. 
I knew that needed more medical assistance to fully recover and after having previously gone to several highly recommended doctors, I did not know who else to see. So I went back to the original doctors to show them that I could walk and let them also realize that I needed more medical assistance.  After 23 additional nerve blocks, 2 of which were phenol, I was not improving.  The pain was now in both feet and legs. During one of the visits to the operating room I was dropped while I was unconscious, completely rupturing the L-4, L-5 and L-5, SI joints.
In 2000 I learned about your nerve test, surgery and successful reputation. I told the neurologist about your surgery.  The neurologist basically laughed at me by saying “if there was a surgery available to cure the pain that you have, there would be a line of patients from here to Dallas waiting for it.”  
Regardless of his statement, I set up an appointment with you in Baltimore and after your nerve testing, you operated on each leg separately.  I am happy to report that the result is that I have been a runner for several years.  I run from 3 to 5 miles whenever I want.  I wanted you to have a photo of me running.
I really appreciate what you did for me.  Thanks Dr. Dellon!

Proximal Tibial Nerve Palsy


 Dr. Dellon was an angel sent from heaven to us.

In December of 2008 Jeffrey went into the hospital for a routine surgery to have his ACL repaired.  He had a peripheral nerve block in place therefore was numbed from his thighs to his toes; a brace was put on his leg.  Unfortunately the brace was too tight.  The tight brace caused Compartment Syndrome, which then led to Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.  This caused a paralyzed leg and excruciating pain in his foot.

We met Dr. Dellon on June 16, 2009 and knew we trusted him immediately.  Dr. Dellon performed surgery on July 16, 2009, and the progress he has made since then is truly a miracle.  He is still working hard to this day towards the best possible outcome.

We will forever be grateful to Dr. Dellon for helping our son with his kind compassionate ways and most of all for his skilled hands that started us on the road to recovery!

Crushed Foot 



Dear Dr Dellon,

It was hard for most people to understand the frustration and suffering I experienced from more than 20 years of sporadic episodes of unexplained shooting pain in my toes. I saw multiple neurologists, orthopedists, pain specialists, osteopaths, chiropractors and therapists, and nobody had an explanation or a solution. I was even told by an emergency room doctor that there are no nerves in the top of my big toe, so I couldn't be feeling the pain that brought to him at 2 am and that I knew was absolutely real!

I would wake up in the middle of the night crying with pain and it would last for two to three days, and nothing helped. Eventually, having figured out which nerve was most likely the cause, and following an unsuccessful attempt by another surgeon to decompress the suspected nerve, the pain was constant and only a substantial daily dose of codeine relieved it.

Researching on line and following trails of information finally led us to you. The most amazing thing was your immediate comprehension of the problem and your willingness to try to track down the exact site of the nerve compression and attempt a surgical procedure to correct it. You suspected that the nerve was caught at the site of a 30 year old fracture of the tibia that had gradually built up scar tissue that trapped the nerve. To relieve the pain in my toes I needed surgery above the fracture site on my calf. Then, when the surgery was only partially successful, it became clear that an adjacent nerve was also trapped in the same area. You immediately scheduled a second surgery three weeks later to complete the job and relieve my pain.

Now, at the six week mark, I am off the codeine and relieved of all its nasty side effects. Last week, as you predicted, I returned to my favorite activity, sailing, and was jumping around the boat barefoot doing my usual tasks. Today I rode my bike for the first time in months. I still have some prickly sensation in the toes, especially at night, but it is quite bearable. Since it is gradually subsiding, I expect to be completely free of pain in the not too distant future.

I am 68 years young, and now feel that I have many years of productive activity ahead of me. I had almost lost hope that I could travel or commit myself to accept volunteer or family responsibilities since I never knew when I would be in severe pain or heavily drugged, or incapacitated for days at a time. As so many of your patients seem to say, I have my life back thanks to you.

Dear Dr Dellon,

I hope you remember me. I am the Doctor from Spain that you operated on one year ago. At that time I was unable to walk without pain and numbness in my leg due to a previous injury. My pain had been with me for years and getting worse. Your surgery has been completely successful. There are no longer the skin color changes in my foot and no swelling. The pain is gone.

You decompressed two nerves in my lower leg and gave the muscles room to grow again. Now I can do my usual work to visit patients, do my pulmonary medicine (bronchoscopy). I can walk without problems and I can dance with my wife again!!!!!!!!

Dear Dr Dellon:

Anna and I wanted to give you a follow-up report on how her right foot is doing following your surgery three years ago.  At that time she stopped competitive figure skating because of the pain in the dorsum (top) of her right foot.  This hurt particularly with take offs and landings during her jumps.  She had seen many doctors as she was competing at the level of the national team.  There were no stress fractures, and she had tried all types of skates.  You diagnosed an entrapment a nerve on the top of her foot, beneath a tendon and crossing a bone.  This is compression of the deep peroneal nerve, a condition you first described.  Wel......

All is well, Anna's foot is great.  She is finishing her last year in college in Colorado, and well, missed skating so much she is training and doing triple jumps again.  She will be going to qualifying competitions.  She loves the competition so, and can now look at it somehow with new eyes!!!  The foot is as if nothing had ever happened to it....

Again Thank you...

Grisha & Gregg Phillips, New York, October 2004

Dear Dr. Dellon:

About a year ago my son Gregg was suffering from Tarsal Tunnel syndrome.  His case was rather severe and when we would travel, he found it necessary to have a wheelchair.  He was constantly in pain and could not walk any distance without some assistance.  One day, I picked up a copy of USA Today which featured and article on Podiatry.  I guess it was meant to be.  Fortunately this article lead us to you. It is obvious why you have such a wonderful reputation in your field.  Gregg had been suffereing a few  years, seen many different doctors, all with various diagnosis and suggestions.  Nothing seemed to help him.  The doctors were not terribly encouraging.  Up until seeing you, we had almost given up hope of ever finding a successful solution.  We were most encouraged by your understanding and grasp of the problem.  You instilled confidence and we decided to follow through with your advice and have surgery to correct the problem.  Here it is a year later and Gregg is pain free.  It is so wonderful to know that he can now plan to go places and do things with his family, and not have to worry about his feet hurting him.

I might also add that both Lisa and Rita in your office were wonderful and extremely helpful.  Everything was handled in a very professional manner.  The services were very much appreciated.  We hope this letter is an inspiration to others who might be contemplating similar surgery with you.

Gregg joins me in thanking you again for everything.  Best regards to you and your competent staff.

jcIt is two years since the surgery done at the Dellon Institute in Baltimore to decompress nerves that were compressed because the diabetes made the nerves more likely to be compressed. Now fully recovered from nerve decompression surgery in both legs, John Cheadle couldn’t be happier. “There is really no adequate way of telling people what constant pain is like,” he says. “That’s gone.” He pauses to search for words, and then declares: “It’s just joyous not having to deal with that pain all the time. I can enjoy life in the way a person really should.”

It has been my happiness in knowing you; in the discovery of the work you have been doing, helping other persons to free them of pain, increase ability to function and live, through your discoveries and contributions in the area of peripheral neuropathies and finding new solutions for pathologies and physical problems regarding nerves.

It has seemed to me that your work in this field is a major contribution to medicine in our time, in this century.

Thirty-three years ago I began exhibiting symptoms of neuropathy. Twenty-three years ago I was referred to you. I want to thank you again for taking me as your patient and giving me realistic hope and defying the odds. Your nerve release prevented my symptoms from getting worse, as had happened over the previous 10 agonizing years. The residual symptoms I endure are minimal. I still use my insulin pump and am very careful about my blood sugar level. To have the nerves regenerate back to 100% is something I was told would never happen yet you have proven otherwise. I am enjoying full use of my hands and of my feet, as you can see me here with my son Chris, who is now going to be a doctor. I can't thank you enough for all you have done for me! Forever grateful,

Middle aged woman with diabetic peripheral neuropathy was told that there was nothing that could be done for her to relieve her pain and help restore sensation to her feet. She was diagnosed with nerve compressions of the proximal tibial nerve in the calf and common peroneal nerve at the knee. She has had excellent improvement in both her pain and her feeling in the left leg after nerve decompression surgery by Dr. Eric Williams.


Middle aged woman with Type 2 diabetes on an insulin pump was told that there was nothing that could be done for her diabetic peripheral neuropathy which was causing numbness and pain in her feet. She was diagnosed with tarsal tunnel syndrome and underwent a tarsal tunnel release by Dr. Williams. She has had good restoration of sensation and relief of pain. She can now even feel the hole in the bottom of the sock that she could not feel on the other foot! This will surely help prevent diabetic ulcers in the future and give her better balance to prevent falls.

After Dr Dellon's surgery to relieve nerve compressins in both of my feet, and my hips/thighs, my neuropathy symptoms have dramatically improved.  I had been in unbearable pain, but Dr Dellon's surgery enabled me to lead a normal pain free life, which I did not believe was ever possible.  In fact, the attached family photo of a recent visit to our historic Mormon Temple would not have been possible without Dr Dellon's amazing skill!  He has restored my entire quality of life!

Golfer Disabled by Neuropathy Plays Golf Again


Hello Dr. Dellon,

As promised, here is a current photo of me on my elliptical machine.  Before the summer 2006 and summer 2007 surgeries I had pain in the right foot and numbness in the left and was facing a severe curtailment of my rigorous exercise program.

Your diagnosis pinpointed an underlying neuropathy missed by others. Following the 2006 surgery on the right foot and lower leg I regained significant function and relief of pain.

The 2007 procedure on left foot further improved my situation. Now as long as I wear very soft-soled shoes I can walk all I want--and even use the elliptical machine--without any pain.

I do feel stiffness in both feet in the morning on first awakening, but that immediately goes away once I move around. Although I have not developed diabetes (probably because of persistent exercise and careful attention to healthful eating), I now realize I have an underlying metabolic problem that will probably lead to further neuropathy in the future.

Knowing your procedure is available makes that knowledge far easier to handle.Thank you.

Bilateral Tarsel Tunnel


 Audrey Jacks, New Orleans, LA , September 2005

Dear Dr Dellon,

It has now been 8 months since you did the surgery that took the pressure off the nerves in my left foot. It was three years since that painful neuropathy began. My feet were even starting to turn colors. It was worse with walking, which caused terrific pain. No one knew the cause of my neuropathy. You found that there were three different places in my leg where my nerves were compressed.

I have to tell you that I am truly getting better. So much so that I really don't think I will need to have the other foot done, which is hard to understand. It is not 100% yet, but it so much better than before. I'm able to walk quite a lot now without pain. I bouth an elliptical machine and am using it very gently.

Here is a picture of me on my machine excercising at home.

Guess you are busy as before. Are you still teaching? Tell Lisa, Rita, and Gina, the girls in your office hello for me. I am so grateful for all you've done for me.

Dear Dr. Dellon:

My life has changed in so many ways because of the surgery that you did.  The pain in my left leg, the one that required amputation is now gone.  I did not realize how much pain I was in.  I had gotten used to it, but then I could no longer wear my prosthesis.  Now, after surgery, I am sleeping again, enjoying eating again, and smiling again.

I have enclosed photos of me playing golf and skiing, wearing the prosthesis.

You were able to find the painful nerves, and relocate them.  Words cannot express how I feel.  I have my life back.

The word has to get out about peripheral nerve damage, so others with pain can be helped.

To Whom it May Concern,

I am a former patient of Dr. Dellon.  He did nerve decompressions in both of my feet and both of my hands, requiring four different operations over the course of one year.  My hands and feet continue now to have feeling and relief of pain.  He was the frst to tell me I had a neuropathy related to what they called then "prediabetes" and now they call the Metabolic Syndrome, or hyperinsulinemia.  He predicted that one day I would be told that I had diabetes, and last year, in fact, they did finally make that diagnosis.

I frst saw him in 1994, the first of many visits.  And the first of many surgeries.  Surgeries which saved me years of pain and diabetes in my arms and hands.  I owe him so much.  He gave me hope and a diagnosis when Doctors in Virginia did nothing.

I will never forget him and I constantly tell others about him.  Not only about his abilities in the operating room but also of his caring and wonderful treatment of his patients.  A Doctor who cares and shows it!

I owe him much, but I know that there is no way I can ever repay him, except to ask God to Bless him always!

Dear Dr. Dellon:

Since the surgeries you did on both my legs and feet three years ago, I can honestly say that I seldom ever have any pain in my legs or feet due to neuropathy.  I am experiencing residual pain in my calves from being on the statin, Lipitor, for so many years.  As you know, I did not have diabetes, and the cause of my previous neuropathy pain remains unknown.

I recently had a chance to look up your new website, and although I did not have diabetes, I found the site to be very informative.  Also, I finally found the time to go to, and find out about the Diabetic Neuropathy Foundation of the Southwest.  I think it is a wonderful idea.

I am so very thankful that you too me as a patient and relieved me of the pain in my feet - it has been wonderful to be without pain.

My sincere thanks,

Florence Steele

Diabetic Neuropathy


Mary Davis, Kattskill Bay, NY, September 2003

I'm not a diabetic.  I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer after surgery in December of 1998 and went through chemotherapy from January to May of 1999.  Towards the end of chemo, I began to feel tingling and numbness in my hands and feet.  Upon finishing chemo, the nurses told me I'd feel "like my 'ole self" in three months.

The tingling in my hands diminished after chemo while the sensations in my feet escalated and the numbness continued.  My feet felt like they were encased in socks filled with tiny glass slivers (24/7).  They were hypersensitive to heat and cold. Neurontin (2400 mg/day) and elavil in the evenings "took the edge off", reducing the glass slivers to sand and gravel.

I was working full time, but by the time I got home in the evening, my feet and body were aching so much I wasn't able to continue standing to prepare dinner.  I was exhasuted from the mental distraction of trying to ignore the pain as I worked through the day.  I kept wondering why I wasn't feeling any better.  My pain level was 9-10 on a 10 scale.

When I walked with others, I found myself unable to keep up, no matter how hard I tried.  I didn't feel any better than a month after completing chemo.  I had been a ski patroller for 30 years and was no longer able to perfrm on-hill/on-skis duties.  At work, I was finding the tasks such as climbing a ladder or hiking through the woods were approaching impossible (due to loss of sensory/balance and motor functions), leaving me faced with becoming disable and no longer able to work.  I was under treatment for depression and had lost the joy in my life.

My oncologist told me that I needed to get out and walk more (before chemo I had been faithfully walking 2 miles a day 4-5 days a week).  I tried to return to walking and after a mile, found myself clinging to a telephone pole with tears in my eyes from the pain in my feet.  As I took my socks off when I got home, I noticed that they were bloody and found large broken blisters on the bottoms of both feet (so numb I didn't even feel it).

While I continued to be told "there's nothing more (than medication) that can be done," I turned to the internet in search of an answer as to why not.  That's where I found Dr. Dellon in October of 2001.  After a few exchanges of email, I was in Baltimore for testing and consultation.  I learned that my onset predated the research that had been done on chemo induced neuropathy and was advised that although "something could be done" it was unsure as to what extent I might shed the pain and regain sensory and motor function.  The explanation of how the chemo damaged the nerves made sense to me and I figured that I had nothing to lose life wasn't worth it living as I was, so any improvement was better than how things were.

I had surgery on my right knee, ankle, and foot in January of 2002 and on the left one in May of 2002.  By November I could clearly see progress.  I was taking less medication AND I was no longer stumbling when I walked.  By late December I realized that I had to discipline myself to not stare at the ground and analyze each step; that I could trust my feet to sense balance as I walked.

I am now (09/03) over a year out from both surgeries.  Although I'm still talking medication for the pain (down to 1200-1600 mg. of neurontin daily, depending on my level of activity) and I am not up to full speed, I continue to see progress and have sufficient feeling back in my feet so I no longer stumble and trip and they don't get blistered when I walk.  Most importantly, I am no longer living with severe chronic pain (now ranges from 2-5, depending on level of activity, and continues to drop) and I have returned to full duties at work along with reesuming recreational activities such as snow skiing that I love so much.

Thomas N. Zirkle, January 2004

Before the operation, my feet were in real pain. Even getting out of bed was a real problem because my feet hurt so much. Walking and standing for any amount of time was almost impossible. I could not even pivot up on my toes to get in my truck. I had to pull myself up and in flat footed.

I had tried every orthotic including some that cost two and three hundred dollars.  I think they only shift the pain from one area to another and do not do anything to relieve the pain.  Other doctors were telling me that foot alignment was the problem when the nerves in my feet were dying.

Pain medications including Neurontin (which is most doctors favorite) only numb the dying nerves so that you may feel less pain.

Dr. Dellon's operation greatly increased the feeling and strength in my feet.  The feeling has increases and pain has been reduced.  The strength has increased until I can now stand on my tip toes without problems.  Getting in the truck is no longer a problem.  My stability has improved until I am no longer tripping over objects on the floor.  I am able to walk through the house barefooted.  As a matter of fact, barefooted is when my feet feel best.  I am now able to enjoy hunting and fishing trips without pain!

There are five things I think will help diabetics with foot neuropathy.  One, stop pain medications.  Two, quit all statin cholesterol medication (get zieta which works in the stomach).  Three, get correct and loose fitting shoes.  Four, maintain absolute control of your blood glucose level (a 5.7 a1c level).  And last, and most important of all, get this operation to increase the blood flow and restore the feeling and strength in your feet.
