Reply To: Nerve Biopsy

I also had the skin punch biopsy done. My neurologist uses the nerve biopsy only in cases where other testing has not been definitive and the diagnosis of CIDP is questionable. He also has the biopsy done by a neurosurgeon with experience doing that type of biopsy. This lessons the chance of residual problems from the procedure.
