As a leader in evidence-based medicine, Cincinnati Children’s Brachial Plexus team is actively involved in both basic science 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 (BPBI) including data captured in our Motion Analysis Laboratory. We also collaborate with colleagues at other pediatric centers to lead and participate in several multi-center studies.

Our interdisciplinary team has successfully contributed to BPBI science over the past five years through 18 peer reviewed publications and 66 national and international presentations.

Publications include:

  • Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery
  • Journal of Children
  • Journal of Hand Surgery
  • Journal of Pediatric Orthopedics
  • Muscle Nerve
