Our Approach to Nerve Entrapment
Johns Hopkins experts have decades of experience assessing nerve entrapments and designing treatment plans to best relieve pain and restore function. Our team treats all kinds of nerve entrapments throughout the body, including:
- Carpal tunnel syndrome (median nerve entrapment at the wrist)
- Cubital tunnel syndrome (ulnar nerve entrapment at the elbow)
- Meralgia paresthetica (femoral sensory nerve entrapments in the thigh)
- Tarsal tunnel syndrome (tibial nerve entrapment at the ankle)
- Thoracic outlet syndrome (brachial plexus nerve entrapment at the shoulder)
- Foot drop (peroneal nerve entrapment in the lower leg)
Our surgeons will recommend the best treatment for you based on your symptoms and the unique anatomy of the nerves.
Some entrapments, like thoracic outlet syndrome, can also compress nearby blood vessels. Our nerve surgeons partner with other experts across Johns Hopkins to address all aspects of entrapment.
