The Neuropathy Center provides diagnostic and therapeutic care to patients with weakness, numbness or pain in their hands or feet caused by nerve damage, called peripheral neuropathy. The clinical team explores possible causes of patients’ neuropathy, including autoimmune or inflammatory conditions, infections, metabolic or endocrine disorders, nutritional anomalies or hereditary causes. Blood tests, electrodiagnostic testing and skin biopsy studies can be part of this diagnostic process. Treatment is then directed at both the underlying cause of the neuropathy and the symptoms. The center also conducts clinical and translational research to understand the underlying mechanisms that cause peripheral neuropathy and develop more effective therapies to treat it, and offers continuing education opportunities for internists and primary care providers.
