What Sets Us Apart

The peripheral nervous system transmits information between the brain and spinal cord and the rest of the body. When the peripheral nerves are damaged or destroyed, a person may have peripheral neuropathy, a condition in which the nerves’ usual function is disrupted, causing pain, weakness, tingling, or other symptoms. 

There are more than 100 types of peripheral neuropathy. NYU Langone neurologists have expertise in diagnosing the condition, as well as any underlying medical problems, such as diabetes , rheumatoid arthritis , or nutrient imbalances, that can cause symptoms of neuropathy.

Treatment at NYU Langone

Peripheral neuropathy is often a chronic condition. NYU Langone doctors may prescribe medication, lifestyle changes, or a technique known as plasma exchange to treat the symptoms.
