RE: Chronic anterior compartment syndrome
I had bilateral Compartment Syndrome of my lateral and posterior compartments. After unsucessful treatment by a PT for unexplained cramping from the knees down, I discovered CS and had a pressure test done to confirm. I eventually had surgery, but not with the doc that diagnosed. The surgeon can make or break the success... it is important to find someone who has ample experience with the surgery. I found a physician out of Madison by the name of William Turnipseed that is an expert on the procedure. Had a total of four compartments released and was running again after 6 weeks. I have met others that have had lesser results resulting in scar tissue build-up which can cause syptoms to return. All in all, I would do the surgery again as it has made a difference in my ability to run in comfort, but I would seriously research surgeons in your area to find one that does quite a few release surgeries (experience).
