Chicago, Illinois (March 17, 2017): Today Hilton Publishing announced the publication and upcoming release of Small Nerves, Big Problems, the first and only comprehensive patient guide to understanding small fiber neuropathy available today.
Written in collaboration by eight renowned neurologists representing some of the leading experts on this disease from across the United States – Todd Levine, MD; David Saperstein, MD; Charles Argoff, MD; Christopher Gibbons, MD, MMSc, FAAN; Holly Hendin, MD, PhD; Mamatha Pasnoor, MD; David Walk, MD; and Glenn Lopate, MD – Small Nerves, Big Problems arms patients and caregivers with the latest information about diagnosing and treating small fiber neuropathy.
“This is a very complex disease that manifests itself in so many different ways, making even the diagnosis of it a challenge for many patients,” notes HPC’s Executive Vice President, Megan Lippert, who leads the publishing division. “Families dealing with small fiber neuropathy will finally have a resource to turn to that answers their questions about the disease and most importantly provides expert recommendations about treatments and therapies they can explore to help minimize the often painful symptoms they’re experiencing. We are so excited to begin sharing this book with patients and with physicians, hospitals and neurological centers across the country in need of this type of patient education.”
Small fiber neuropathy is a type of peripheral neuropathy that occurs from damage to the small nerve fibers in the peripheral nervous system, the system of nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord. It is one of the most common diseases seen by a neurologist, affecting an estimated 2.4% of the general population today.
Small Nerves, Big Problems provides vital information for all individuals affected by small fiber neuropathy including insights into what causes it, what the common signs and symptoms are, how it’s diagnosed, ways to manage the disease and therapies that have been shown to help minimize pain.
