MGH Nerve Unit

We work to help people with different types of damage to their peripheral nerves. This is known as neuropathy. The peripheral nerves run throughout the body and control most of our conscious and unconscious functions.

Global Neuropathy Network

Peripheral neuropathy is common but most often undiagnosed. We recommend that patients seek care from centers of excellence around the world and we provide a list of collaborating experts from many countries. We conduct research with these centers to benefit neuropathy patients around the world.
