The Peripheral Nerve Clinic at Mayo Clinic in Arizona offers specialty care for people who've had a peripheral nerve injury or brachial plexus injury or who have a peripheral nerve tumor in the neck, arms or legs.

What we offer

  • The most effective options for diagnosis and treatment of peripheral nerve injuries and tumors
  • An integrated team of Mayo Clinic physicians, therapists and surgeons with extensive, specialized experience and skills
  • Personalized care in a compassionate, supportive environment

Are you a prospective patient?

The Peripheral Nerve Clinic in Arizona evaluates and provides surgical options for patients with these conditions:

Brachial plexus care

One of the most common peripheral nerve injuries that we treat is brachial plexus injury, which can vary widely in severity and required complexity of care.

Our team of Mayo Clinic surgeons, radiologists, physical therapists and other specialists uses advanced technology, sophisticated imaging tests and comprehensive examinations to obtain a detailed, accurate diagnosis of your injury. Your team collaborates to evaluate your condition and determine the most appropriate treatment.

Surgeons often work together in the Peripheral Nerve Clinic to perform needed surgeries simultaneously. This can shorten the length of time you need to be under anesthesia.

Peripheral nerve tumor care

Colleagues in Orthopedic Oncology, Clinical Genomics, Neuro-Oncology and Neuroradiology work closely to provide comprehensive care and treatment of peripheral nerve tumors.

Typical peripheral nerve tumors that we treat include schwannomas and neurofibromas. For each, the Peripheral Nerve Clinic team relies on specific strengths to bring you the best care:

  • Extensive experience diagnosing peripheral nerve tumors
  • Innovative, noninvasive approaches to nerve imaging such as high-resolution, 3D imaging
  • Access to diagnostic studies unavailable at many institutions, such as multimodal imaging and genetic analysis
  • Advanced imaging techniques to help distinguish cancerous tumors from benign tumors without a biopsy or incision

If you and your doctor decide that surgery is the right option for you, your surgeon will bring focused expertise to your peripheral nerve tumor care. For example:

  • Mayo surgeons can leverage the latest techniques to remove a tumor while sparing nearby tissue and minimizing damage to nerves.
  • Computer-aided navigation and intraoperative monitoring can identify and protect healthy nerves.

Physical and occupational medicine and rehabilitation specialists can help you recover function after treatment.

A team approach to care for the whole person

Mayo Clinic uses an integrated practice model that coordinates care across many specialties and subspecialties for those with peripheral nerve injuries or tumors. This team approach provides a thorough evaluation with well-rounded treatment recommendations to enhance function and restore quality of life.

During your two-day comprehensive consultation, you'll receive a thorough evaluation by multiple specialists and likely undergo a series of procedures and tests. Your team will use those findings to recommend a treatment plan that's specific to your individual needs and goals.

During your visit you will likely meet a neurologist, a physical therapist, an occupational therapist and a peripheral nerve surgeon. You may also receive diagnostic studies such as X-ray, MRI or electromyography (EMG).
