Diabetes and nerve damage: Approach to Care

Tibial nerve decompression surgery is a relatively unknown procedure that is not widely performed. Shands HealthCare provides this procedure at the Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgery Center located in the Shands Medical Plaza at Shands at the University of Florida. 

Through a close affiliation with Shands HealthCare, UF faculty physicians have access to the advanced medical technology and facilities of a leading healthcare organization in north Florida. Patients benefit from these resources when they choose Shands HealthCare for reconstructive surgery.
