We know exploring surgical pain relief options can be overwhelming. That’s why we created a video to simply explain the basics of Targeted Muscle Reinnervation (TMR). 

TMR is a surgical treatment to help alleviate nerve pain associated with amputation. When a limb is amputated, the remaining nerves continue to grow, though they are disconnected from the amputated limb. Since they have nowhere to go, they can form into a painful neuroma. If you think about nerves as electrical wiring, TMR helps to complete the “circuit” by reconnecting the “live wire.” During a TMR procedure, surgeons reroute amputated nerves by attaching them to other nerves in nearby muscles. 

You deserve to have as much information as possible to address pain associated with limb loss, either existing or anticipated due to an upcoming amputation. Our experts designed this video to give you a sense of what TMR surgery can do for you.
