Dr. Ratcliffe discusses Neuropathy
Our Patients Speak
We specialize in helping patients suffering with peripheral neuropathy or peripheral neuropathy related issues. We work with people from all walks of life. Peripheral neuropathy happens when the peripheral nerves (usually in the hands and feet) are damaged by traumatic injuries, exposure to toxins, illnesses and infections, metabolic issues and inherited causes. A common cause of peripheral neuropathy is diabetes. This condition can affect one nerve (mononeuropathy) or one nerve in multiple locations (multiple mononeuropathy) of the body or many nerves (polyneuropathy).
