Study Summary

The objective is to quantify in 2 years the feasibility of recruiting and retaining Veterans at the AVAMC in an EA protocol. The investigators will implement a training protocol for AMI and RPNI. The investigators will document competence and timing to competence for the AVAHCS surgical team. The investigators will perform EA in AVAHCS Veterans who meet inclusion/exclusion parameters and elect EA surgical intervention. Veterans will then participate in the investigators' postoperative protocol out to 6 months. The criteria to moving to phase 2 includes clinically consenting and and performing EA in 30 Veterans and collecting 6 months follow up data over 18 months at AVAHCS and 70% or better complete follow-up at 6 month time point after operation.
