The peripheral nervous system (PNS) is a vast, intricate network of nerves branching out from the spinal column and is responsible for receiving and sending information. When nerves in the feet are damaged due to disease, injury, or even surgical errors, the result can range from total numbness to shooting, burning, or zinging pain.
Our podiatrists are specially trained and experienced in diagnosis and treatment of nerve problems, including the use of therapeutic lasers, electronic signal treatment, and advanced surgical procedures for nerve decompression, and more. Dr. Craig H. Thomajan, DPM, FACFAS is dedicated to continued his education and training in the treatment of peripheral nerve pain. You can view certificates of his ongoing training here.

While we always strive to solve your problems with conservative treatment options whenever possible, sometimes surgery provides the best option for relieving your pain and getting you back to living the lifestyle you enjoy. The doctors at Austin Foot & Ankle Specialists have advanced training and extensive experience in a multitude of lower extremity surgical procedures, including reconstruction of deformities (like bunions, hammertoes, and flat feet), total joint replacement, ankle arthroscopy, nerve decompression, and even repair for errors made by other surgeons.
Over the last few decades, medical technology has made giant leaps forward. At Austin Foot & Ankle Specialists, our doctors keep up with the latest technological advances, especially in the emerging (and game-breaking) field of regenerative medicine. These treatments and technologies stimulate the body's own natural healing ability, which not only brings pain relief but can also significantly shorten recovery and rehab times for injuries. Regenerative medical techniques offered include EPAT shockwave therapy, platelet-rich plasma therapy, therapuetic laser technology, and more.
Feet can hurt for a wide variety of reasons, from sports injuries and infections to nerve problems, joint disorders, bad biomechanics, and a whole lot more. Correctly identifying the source of the pain, then providing exactly the treatment you need, is our mission. Our team of highly educated and trained specialists are here to relieve your pain and get you better, faster, so you can go back to enjoying your daily activities.
