Circumscribed damage to peripheral nerves is very common. Carpal tunnel syndrome, for example, is one of the most common disorders and causes sufferers to lose sleep due to the painful tingling sensations during the night. The cause is a pinched nerve in the wrist. Compression syndromes in other places, however, as well as inflammatory nerve damage can also cause pain, discomfort, and paresis. The consultations also focus on the treatment of nerve injuries in cooperation with nerve surgeons, hand and plastic surgeons. In addition to many years of clinical expertise, it has become indispensable for diagnoses to use the methods of clinical neurophysiology, with a focus on electromyography and neurography, as well high-resolution ultrasound examinations on the nerve and state-of-the-art diagnostics. Dr. K. Scheglmann, who has worked for more than 30 years as an expert in neurophysiology and who was one of the first to use ultrasound diagnostics to examine nerves, has been offering his experience to these patients in the specialist consultations for many years in cooperation with Dr. Jan Drackle.
Consultations focus on the peripheral nervous system:
- Second opinions in cases where nerve damage is not clear
- Rare compression syndromes: Thoracic outlet syndrome
- Supinator syndrome, tarsal tunnel, etc.
- Focal immune neuropathy, Lewis Sumner syndrome, multifocal motor neuropathies, etc.
- Benign and malignant nerve tumors
- Nerve injuries, brachial plexus injuries
- Radicular lesions
- Nerve damage in the groin and pelvic floor region, pudendal neuralgia
- Neuropathy in intensive care medicine
