Nerve Injuries

Pinched and compressed peripheral nerves associated with weakness, pain, or tingling sensations.

Spasticity/Joint Contracture

Pain Free Amputation for Better Quality of Life

"I have no words to describe this doctor and the appreciation I have for him. After 12 failed surgeries due to Ehlers Danlos syndrome I was referred to Dr Rodriguez and instantly knew I needed him on my team. He has AMAZING skills and the bedside manner to match. When my case scared other doctors off, Dr Rodriguez stepped up and handled it amazingly. After living with excruciating pain, swelling, infections for 5+ years I thought there was no way out. Dr Rodriguez proved me wrong. I have ZERO regrets with my decision to have him on my team. He allowed me to gain my life back and that’s something I could never repay him for, no matter how hard I tried. I would definitely recommend Dr Rodriguez to other patients as I have faith he could help them the same way he helped me. Thanks, doc!!"
