Visiting International Scholar Program

In the past several years, we have been privileged at the Texas Nerve and Paralysis Institute to host several international surgeons and specialists as visiting scholars. These physicians contacted us to ask if they could observe and learn Dr. Nath´s techniques in brachial plexus and other nerve reconstruction surgeries. Our scholars have traveled from such locations as Britain, Germany, India, Canada and Morocco. Each has benefited from their experience and we have benefited from discussing the many facets of major nerve injury with these accomplished physicians. We have received several occupational and physical therapists as well.

One offshoot of our initial experience has been the knowledge that specialists in many developing countries do not have the resources to travel to Houston, even for relatively short periods of time. To address this problem, we have made available funding to enable travel and lodging costs for interested and qualified individuals who have the need to learn brachial plexus techniques based on the methods used at the Texas Nerve and Paralysis Institute.

Our first funded Scholar, Dr. Abdelouahed Amrani, a pediatric brachial plexus surgeon from Morocco, recently began to use the techniques he learned during his week here.

His comments:

"Dear Dr Nath,
I´ve started to work this week, and I want to send you the picture of my first mod quad that I´ve done in July. The mother is very satisfied and me too. This picture is immediately after removing the splint, the patient have an abduction more that 130º and I´m sure that after rehabilitation will have more.

I´m very happy for this simple and efficient surgery, I´ve more than 10 cases waiting and I will do the same kind of surgery. Dr Nath, I want to tell you an another time thank you for having to help me to learn this surgery and I hope that I´ve another occasion to meet you here in Morocco or in USA.

My best feelings

Hello to your familly and your staff

Dr Amrani"

Recent improvements in diagnostic and surgical technique and have allowed relatively straightforward management of children and adults with brachial plexus injury and these are easily transferable to the setting of small hospitals with limited resources in developing countries.

Our mission is to train and certify as many international and other surgeons and specialists as possible to improve the public health for millions of patients worldwide who have sustained this type of injury. It all begins with programs like the Visiting Scholar Program and we look forward to serving the international community to the greatest extent possible.

Candidates for the program should fill out the online application form and let us know why they wish to learn our techniques and how it will improve the quality of health care in their country and community.

Sincerely,

Rahul K. Nath, M.D.
