When patients present with damage or dysfunction of one or more nerves resulting in pain, numbness, tingling and/or weakness, you will be called upon to review a variety of causes and treatment options.

At the end of this activity participants will be able to:

  1. Identify symptoms and causes of typical nerve compression syndromes.
  2. Describe common neuromas.
  3. Describe possible treatment options including surgical interventions.
