Peripheral nerve tumors
A range of conditions in which tumors form in the peripheral nerves in the body, affecting nerve function and causing pain and disability.
Malignant nerve sheath tumors
An aggressive form of cancer in which tumors grow in the cells surrounding peripheral nerves.
Inherited disorders of the nervous system which affect how nerve cells form and grow, causing tumors to grow on nerves.
A genetic disorder that results in tumors, called schwannomas, on peripheral nerves throughout the body.
Traumatic nerve injuries
Nerve injuries that result from trauma to the nerve.
Acute nerve injuries, lacerations, crush injuries
Injury to the nerves that can cause them to become crushed or cut.
Brachial plexus injuries
Injury to the brachial plexus, the network of nerves that send signals from your spine to your shoulder, arm and hand, that occurs when nerves are stretched or torn.
Nerve compressions and entrapments
A condition caused by direct pressure on a single nerve. Symptoms affect just one particular part of the body depending on the nerve compressed, and include pain, tingling, numbness, and muscle weakness.
The peripheral nervous system includes all of the nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord. These nerves can be injured in many different ways resulting in numbness, weakness or pain. Peripheral nerves can be pinched such as happens in carpal tunnel syndrome, stretched as is seen when a major trauma results in a brachial plexus injury, and cut resulting in loss of function or painful neuromas. A multidisciplinary approach can treat many peripheral nerve injuries improving pain and function.
Ulnar nerve injuries
Injury to or dysfunction with the ulnar nerve that travels from the shoulder to the hand.
