• Brachial Plexus Research

    Our current and on-going research includes:

    • Basic science research in the lab focusing on the impact of these injuries on the growth and development of muscles, with investigation of medications to preserve muscle tissue and prevent contractures.
    • Clinical research with focus on surgical outcomes, use of testing to help guide operative and non-operative management, outcomes following Botox injections, and aspects of therapeutic intervention.
    • Multi-center studies focusing on the appropriate timing of nerve repair as well as psychosocial development of adolescents.

    • Comparing Functional Outcomes Following Nerve Grafting versus Nerve Transfer Procedures in Neonatal Brachial Plexus Palsy.
    • Assessment of Pediatric Outcomes Data Collection Instrument scores within the Pediatric Brachial Plexus Population
    • Active versus Passive Stretch for Treatment of Elbow Flexion Contractures Following Neonatal Brachial Plexus Injuries:  A Randomized Controlled Trial
    • Muscle Contracture Pathophysiology in Children with Cerebral Palsy and Neonatal Brachial Plexus Injury
    • Incidence and Assessment of Diaphragmatic Paralysis in the Brachial Plexus Population

    • Outcomes of Spinal Accessory to Suprascapular Nerve Transfers for Neonatal Brachial Plexus Palsy
    • Prospective Study of the Treatment for Brachial Plexus Birth Palsy
    • Outcomes of Early Shoulder Posterior Subluxation and Dysplasia Following Neonatal Brachial Plexus Palsy
