Treatment Benefits

Results:

  • Nerve grafting: 20% to 90% improve, depending on extent and type of injury
  • Nerve transfer: 20% to 90% improve, depending on extent and type of injury
  • Tendon/ muscle transfers: Most patients show functional improvements

Our main goal in recommending surgery in brachial plexus injuries is to restore as complete function as possible. 100% or normal function probably cannot be achieved by anyone, but significant improvements in function and structure are certainly possible. We aim to make both arms as close to the same as possible, in children as well as adults. It is important to note that we are not talking about surgery for the sake of appearance.

Any extremity that does not look normal cannot function normally; therefore, normal appearance may be a side benefit of reconstructive surgery and is accompanied by improved function and growth.

Our main goal in recommending surgery in brachial plexus injuries is to restore as complete function as possible.

Reconstructive surgery may involve operating on the nerves, the bones, the tendons, the muscles, the blood vessels and the skin, sometimes all in the same operation.

Brachial Plexus ^ Some children regain a great deal of function; others show modest improvement.

Our surgical team (Dr. Nath is the only surgeon, but operating room anesthesiologists and nurses are important in providing a safe and efficient operation) can perform most necessary procedures and our therapy team will be able to provide state of the art treatment for non- surgical and post-surgical patients.

We will talk with you about specific goals for your child or for you as a patient. We are concerned about your total well-being. We will be glad to talk with you about emotional, social and vocational issues. Whenever you have questions, please ask us.
