Diagnosing and treating pain in peripheral and central nervous system disorders
Dr. Jensen' research is focused on pain in peripheral and central nervous diseases, most recently diabetic neuropathy. His expertise has led to new classifications and treatments for pain in peripheral nerve injuries, spinal cord injury, and CNS disorders, such as MS and stroke. He is currently leading an initiative on diabetic neuropathy that focuses on pathophysiology, epidemiology, and diagnostic classifications.
