Thoracic Outlet Syndrome Healed with Nerve Surgery

“He knew exactly what to do when the other doctors didn’t know anything.”
Moira had horrible shooting pain down her left arm that radiated down into her hand and fingers.
After enduring a number of inconclusive MRIs and an EMG study, she was diagnosed with compression of the ulnar nerve.

Dr. Tollestrup understood her problem was more complex.


It was awful. I was in such pain. Oh, the pain would radiate down my arm, like it was all on fire, right from the neck all the way down.

And it was so fast and it was wonderful. The pain was gone, it was gone. Ah, it’s great to be out of pain. So great. I’m back to normal. I feel like a normal person.
