For Physicians: Cutaneous Nerve Biopsy and Analysis

Physicians can schedule patients for cutaneous nerve/skin biopsies at Johns Hopkins without a separate new patient consultation visit. Call 410-614-6399.

Or you can perform skin punch biopsies in your office, and send the tissue samples to our lab for processing and interpretation within one to two weeks.

The process is simple. Here are step-by-step instructions:

  1. Submit patient information
  2. Order a test kit
  3. Perform the biopsy (Watch the skin biopsy video)
  4. Protect the sample
  5. Ship the biopsy
  6. Teach patient proper site care
