The peripheral nerves span from head to toe, connecting the brain and spinal cord with the rest of the body. There are hundreds of disorders and injuries that affect this system. UT Southwestern Medical Center physicians are among a handful of specialists in the United States who are fellowship trained in evaluating and resolving these types of medical issues.
"As fellowship-trained specialists in peripheral nerve disorders, we are uniquely prepared to handle routine as well as extremely complex cases."Jonathan Cheng, M.D.
