The Peripheral Nerve Center at Johns Hopkins has assembled a group of specialists with expertise in common and rare nerve disorders. We offer diagnosis and state-of-the-art medical and surgical treatments, while providing the highest quality care and improving our understanding of peripheral nerve diseases through research. We take a holistic approach to address the total wellbeing of the patient by working closely with colleagues from other fields to provide multi-specialty care.

Diagnostic Services for Peripheral Nerve Disorders
This is one of the foremost clinical and research groups in the world for electromyography, nerve conduction studies and specialized techniques such as single-fiber recordings.
Neuromuscular Pathology Lab
This lab performs more than 200 nerve and muscle biopsies a year and receives biopsies from other hospitals for processing, interpretation and review.
Cutaneous Nerve Lab
This lab developed a skin biopsy technique that allows to see the small nerve fibers within the skin, which is especially useful in assessing small sensory pain fibers that are "invisible" in nerve conduction studies.

Our Peripheral Nerve Experts
Research & Clinical Trials
Our team conducts peripheral neuropathy research around the following topics:
- Mechanisms of inefficient nerve regeneration in humans and ways to promote faster and more complete nerve generation using animal models and novel biomaterials research.
- Mechanisms of nerve degeneration caused by various chemotherapy drugs and diabetes.
- Drug discovery to identify new drugs that prevent nerve degeneration and bring them to clinical use.
- Ways to remove or treat tumors of patients with neurofibromatosis while leaving the nerves intact.
