The Peripheral Nerve and Plexus Surgery Program (PNPSP) at Cleveland Clinic's Neurological Institute is a specialized multidisciplinary clinic designed to diagnose and treat brachial and lumbosacral plexus disorders, and focal neuropathies of the upper and lower extremities, including peripheral nerve tumors, trauma, and entrapment. The program incorporates expert clinical evaluation, world class electrodiagnostic testing, state-of-the-art imaging technology, cutting-edge surgical management options, and post-operative rehabilitation and pain management services.
The Peripheral Nerve and Plexus Surgery Program offers the unique advantage of allowing select patients to undergo a prearranged same-day evaluation, including electrodiagnostic evaluation, imaging, and assessment by a neurologist and neurosurgeon with an expertise in treating these disorders. In some cases, evaluation over the two days is required. An interdisciplinary approach is utilized in order to provide a tailored treatment plan for each patient.
