Medical Services related to Peripheral Nerve Surgery
After a trauma, a large cut or surgery around the nerves, scar tissue forms. Scar tissue is both good and bad. It helps the nerve attach to nearby structures, but when the patient moves, pressure is placed on the nerve because the scar tissue can pull on the nerve. Even without movement, the scar tissue can reduce the nerve's blood supply. All of this can cause significant nerve pain.
The specialists of the Department of Neurology's Peripheral Neuropathy Center, at the University of Michigan Health System, have the experience, the newest treatments, and a multidisciplinary team to provide comprehensive, coordinated care.
The University of Michigan's divisions of Pain Management find the source of pain and treat it, from chronic and acute pain to headaches and back pain.
