We treat nerve pain such as meralgia paresthetica, occipital neuralgia, inguinal neuralgia, and neuromas.
Surgical treatment to decompress the nerve may be considered for entrapment neuropathies such as carpal tunnel, thoracic outlet syndrome and peroneal neuropathy.
Trauma and sometimes even other surgical procedures can result in paralysis and disability in particular nerves. Our peripheral nerve experts can treat these nerve injuries (including
brachial plexus and
facial nerve injuries) and restore function.
