Brachial Plexus Surgery

The brachial plexus is a network of nerves that control movement and sensation in the arms and hands. When this network of nerves is injured or damaged, it can lead to weakness or paralysis in the affected arm. Brachial plexus surgery is a specialized type of surgery that can help to restore function to the affected arm.

At our hospital, we have a team of experienced brachial plexus surgeons who specialize in the diagnosis and treatment of brachial plexus injuries. Our team uses the latest surgical techniques to repair damaged nerves and restore function to the affected arm.

The surgery involves identifying the damaged nerves and repairing or replacing them as needed. Depending on the extent of the damage, the surgery may involve a nerve graft, nerve transfer, or a combination of both. Our team of surgeons will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan that meets your individual needs and goals.

Following the surgery, you can expect to stay in the hospital for a few days for monitoring and to ensure a safe recovery. Our team of dedicated orthopaedic surgeons will work closely with you to create a comprehensive recovery plan that includes physical therapy and ongoing support and follow-up care.

If you are struggling with weakness or paralysis in your arm due to a brachial plexus injury, our team of experts is here to provide you with the care and expertise you need to restore function to your arm and improve your quality of life.
