The brachial plexus is a network of nerves that conducts signals from the spinal cord and controls movement and feeling in the shoulder, arm and hand. Brachial plexus injuries are caused by damage to those nerves. Injuries can occur in many ways – from auto accidents, falls, sports injuries, or related to the birthing process.
Our Brachial Plexus Center is one of only a few in the country to offer a team approach to diagnosing and treating children with brachial plexus injuries. We have specialists in orthopaedic surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, occupational therapy and rehabilitation, all working together to help your child. We coordinate your child’s care, so you spend less time seeking services through multiple providers. At your first visit, we will develop an individualized treatment plan for your child.
The treatment we provide to your child is based on the best scientific information and medical practices available. Treatment will depend on the extent of your child’s injury, and might include both non-surgical and surgical options.
The Brachial Plexus team is actively involved in basic and clinical research. Our basic science research focuses on muscle growth and preserving muscle tissue. Our clinical studies examine surgical and treatment outcomes for children with brachial plexus injuries. We are also involved in two multi-center studies in collaboration with colleagues at other pediatric centers.
We are committed to improving the quality of life for every child in our care. In our surveys of patients and families, we receive a 97 percent satisfaction rating.
