Peripheral neuropathy care at Mayo Clinic

Doctors at Mayo Clinic are experts at diagnosing and treating peripheral neuropathy. They will work with your primary doctor to help coordinate your treatment.

Your Mayo Clinic care team

  • Specialized expertise. Your Mayo Clinic care team may include doctors trained in diagnosing and treating nervous system disorders (neurologists and neurosurgeons); restoring function after injury (rehabilitation specialists); and treating pain (anesthesiologists or pain specialists).
  • Coordinated care. Your care is discussed among the team, appointments are scheduled in coordination and highly specialized peripheral neuropathy experts are all working together to determine what's best for you.

    What might take months to accomplish elsewhere can typically be done in only a matter of days at Mayo Clinic.

  • Advanced diagnosis and treatment. Mayo Clinic patients have access to the latest imaging and diagnostic tools available, and there's a long history of Mayo Clinic scientists developing cutting-edge technologies for patient care. You may also have access to research studies or clinical trials as part of your treatment.
