Peripheral Nerve Surgery Center

The Rutgers Health Peripheral Nerve Surgery Center treats the causes and effects of problems that involve the peripheral nerves. The center provides care to patients with traumatic nerve injury, primary peripheral nerve neoplasms, and secondary tumors that may affect the peripheral nerves.

The center performs leading-edge testing to measure activity in a patient’s nervous system with:

  • MRI neurography
    • A measure of electrical activity in the body through direct imaging of nerves
  • Electrodiagnostic studies
    • A measure of nerve responses to external electrical stimulus
  • Intraoperative monitoring
    • Uses electroencephalography (EEG), electromyography (EMG), and evoked potentials (responses) to interpret electrical activity in parts of the nervous system

Physicians serving the center are on the faculty of Rutgers New Jersey Medical School, a part of Rutgers University, one of the top research institutions in America. Our doctors are active in research and in teaching about all aspects of neurology and peripheral nerve behaviors. Each brings life-changing knowledge from the classroom to the exam room.

If you or a loved one seeks treatment for conditions that involve the peripheral nerves, make an appointment with the Rutgers Health Peripheral Nerve Surgery Center.
