Nerves out of the spinal column and in the limbs are called peripheral nerves. These nerves in the soft tissues of the body are subject to various disorders ranging from injury to tumors. Surgery for peripheral nerve disorders is relatively common. Neurosurgeons are experts in the care of nerves anywhere from the center of the brain, through the spinal column, and out to the tips of the fingers and toes. Carilion Clinic's neurosurgery team is highly experienced in the treatment of all forms of peripheral nerve conditions.
