Our Global Experts

Based at the Massachusetts General Hospital Nerve Unit, the Neuropathy Gene Registry connects patients to a team of internationally known experts. We can help clarify genetic test results identifying neuropathy-associated gene variants, and identify expert local care and research studies. We also welcome questions from physicians seeking information about a specific variant or patient. Please obtain the gene testing report to provide accurate details.
