Brachial Plexus Palsy-There Is Hope and There Is Help

What do five of every 1,000 live births in the United States have incommon? An injury to the brachial plexus - a group of nerves in the neck and shoulder area that control movement of the shoulders, arms
and hands.

Dr. Nath has experience with both adult and pediatric brachial plexus injuries. Adult brachial plexus injury is most commonly sustained from vehicle accidents or sporting events and affect the sensibility and muscle power of the entire extremity. Pediatric brachial plexus injuries tend to happen at birth and are usually associated with the shoulder or elbow rather than the hand.

Remember, children with brachial plexus injuries are completely different from adults and require different management. The Brachial Plexus Program at Texas Children's Hospital in Houston has been in existence for over 16 years and has evaluated over 5,000 new children with obstetric brachial plexus injuries in that time. We have treated over 250 adult patients as well. We have developed and invented several new operations and therapy protocols for treatment of these injuries.
