Nerves can be sutured together or grafted from another part of the body.
Some patients with nervous
system injury may consider surgery. There are doctors who specialize in nerve
surgery in the peripheral nervous system. Nerves can be sutured together or
grafted from another part of the body. This type of surgery has many imperfections
and does not lead to full recovery. Recovery depends on the location of the
surgery and the age of the patient. The process of regaining sensation in the
repaired nerve site can be painful and lengthy, but many patients choose surgery
because some sensation is better than none.
