The Johns Hopkins Peripheral Nerve Surgery Center is a multi-disciplinary clinic that focuses on the surgical repair of injured nerves, the removal of nerve tumors, and the decompression of nerve entrapments.
Patients at the Peripheral Nerve Surgery Center benefit from our collaborative approach. Your doctors consult with each other, using specific knowledge of their specialized area of medicine to formulate an exact diagnosis and treatment plan that's best for you.
Many nerve injuries and disorders are first recognized by neurologists, neuromuscular specialists and orthopedists. Drawing on the expert medical talent at Johns Hopkins, our physicians rely on their expert colleagues in other disciplines to share information, leading to the highly specialized experience our world-renowned medical institution is known for.
Multi-disciplinary Care and the Practice of Neurosurgery
Working with other expert colleagues is of primary importance to our neurosurgeons. The surgical treatment of many nerve injuries and disorders relies heavily upon an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management planning. Surgical treatment is often a last resort, as the risks are many.
Often, the neurosurgeons at the Center rely on other world-renowned specialists who are experienced in the diagnosis and treatment of peripheral nerve injuries. In the case of muscle reconstruction, Dr Allan Belzberg often consults with Dr Gene Deune or Dr Richard Redett, plastic surgery specialists with experience in these types of plastic surgery reconstructions. They can move muscle from one part of the body to another and Dr Belzberg performs the nerve transfer to innervate the muscle.

The Role of Imaging Expertise
In the case of imaging, our doctors use the talent and expertise of Hopkins radiology and radiological science faculty. Using MRI Neurography, supervised by Dr John Carrino, our doctors are able to see nerves in a way that no other imaging test can provide.
