Peripheral Nerve Surgery


Neuro Spinal Hospital has assembled a group of experts that provide expertise in peripheral nerve disorders, from diagnosis to medical and surgical treatment and rehabilitation. The Peripheral Nerve Center was founded to provide the highest quality care for peripheral nerve diseases. The team is highly committed to offering state-of-the-art neurological and neurosurgical care and works closely with colleagues from other disciplines to provide team-oriented and multi-disciplinary care to these patients as well as support to their families. For more than ten years, patients from many countries have come to Neuro Spinal Hospital for care of their peripheral nerve problems. Nowadays the Peripheral Nerve Center is starting to focus also on the treatment of patients with Neurofibromatosis, a genetic disease that requires constant clinical and radiological follow up: this is the only center in the whole Gulf area.

Treatment of neuropathic pain is also another service provided at the Center.

The Physicians of the Peripheral Nerve Center have access to outstanding diagnostic imaging technology (ultrasound and MRI) as well as the most advanced Electrophysiology lab.
