Multi-Specialty Care for Nerve Injuries and Disorders

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. The surgical treatment of many nerve injuries and disorders relies heavily on an accurate diagnosis and appropriate planning. Surgical treatment is often the last resort, as the risks are many. In the case of muscle reconstruction, Dr. Belzberg often consults with Dr. Richard Redett, a plastic surgery specialist with experience in these types of plastic surgery reconstructions. He 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. MRI neurography helps our doctors see nerves in a way that no other imaging test can match.
