The peripheral nerve system is a web of 43 pairs of motor and sensory nerves that join the brain and spinal cord (called the central nervous system) to the whole body. Sensation, movement and motor function are all under the control of the peripheral nerves. They are very delicate, easily damageable nerves. Trauma or injury to nerves is something only remedied with surgery. Dr. Yashar’s knowledge of the peripheral nervous system combined with his surgical expertise make for superior surgical outcomes.
