Peripheral Nerve Surgery

Peripheral nerve injuries can be the result of ongoing chronic conditions or acute injuries.  Many injuries can be treated non-operatively with physical or occupational therapy, but some injuries require surgical intervention to restore sensation, regain motor function, or to improve pain.  UC Health nerve surgery specialists routinely treat problems involving the peripheral nerves.

Early evaluation after a peripheral nerve injury by a nerve surgery specialist can frequently expedite a return to function.  UC Health nerve surgery specialists function across the spectrum of plastic surgery, orthopaedic surgery, hand surgery, neurosurgery, neurology, physical medicine & rehabilitation, occupational therapy, physical therapy, and anesthesia/pain management.
