What are Nerve Injuries?

Nerves are a vital part of your body’s internal communication system, delivering messages to and from the brain. Because they are fragile, nerves can be easily damaged by any kind of pressure, stretching or cutting. When nerve injuries occur, you can lose both feeling and movement in your hands.

As a physician skilled in the treatment of hand nerve injuries, Dr. John H. Miller offers his board-certified services to patients across the Gulf Coast region. Apogee Plastic Surgery is known to the residents of Biloxi, Gulfport, Pascagoula, Hattiesburg, Long Beach, Ocean Springs, and the surrounding Mississippi communities as a place where they can count on warm, experienced care.

How are Nerve Injuries Treated?

The treatment for nerve injuries in Mississippi will depend on the scope of the trauma. Damage is rated on a scale from first to fifth degree. Nerve injuries in the first- to third-degree range will usually heal on their own. If the trauma is particularly deep, however, surgery may be recommended.
