Expert Care for Peripheral Nerve Injuries

The peripheral nervous system consists of all the nerves in the body that branch out from the brain and spinal cord and includes nerves in your arms, legs, face and chest. The peripheral nerves are important structures in the body that carry information from the brain and spinal cord out to the muscles to initiate movements, and carry sensory information back to the spinal cord. These nerves make it possible to move, feel, see and hear.

Peripheral nerve disorders disrupt messages from the brain to the rest of the body and can affect one nerve or many nerves. When any of these nerves are damaged, it can lead to chronic pain that may be very difficult to treat.

The expert team at UH is experienced in using innovative surgical techniques to restore function following various traumatic nerve injury.
