Peripheral nerves are responsible for carrying sensory information, including pain, touch, pressure, hot, and cold from the body back to the brain and spinal cord. The peripheral system also carries all motor function information from the brain and spinal cord to the muscles. Peripheral Nerve Disorders can occur when these essential nerves become damaged, leading to many uncomfortable symptoms and a decrease in your body’s ability to function and feel. At Austin Neurosurgeons, our goal is to enhance function, alleviate suffering, and improve the overall quality of life for our patients. We offer a variety of services for evaluating, diagnosing, and treating a range of peripheral nerve disorders including carpal tunnel & ulnar nerve impingement.
