Brachial Plexus and Peripheral Nerve Center
The Wake Forest Brachial Plexus and Peripheral Nerve Center integrates clinical care, research, and education to advance the treatment of all types of obstetric and adult brachial plexus injuries and peripheral nerve pathologies, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, cubital tunnel syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome.
The development of an integrated multidisciplinary team approach to fulfill our mission ensures that individual patient care is always the primary objective.
The brachial plexus is a nerve network derived from the spinal cord that controls the movement and sensation of the hand and arm. Brachial plexus palsy occurs secondary to birth-related injury (Erb's Palsy, Obstetric Palsy), high speed trauma or results from tumor, radiation and compression. It is imperative that a patient with brachial plexus injury is evalulated by experienced medical specialists who can monitor and treat the patient early.
The goal of the Brachial Plexus and Peripheral Nerve Center is to provide a state-of-art diagnostic facility, surgical techniques and therapeutic approaches to maximize a patient's functional recovery. This is accomplished by an experienced multi-specialty team including reconstructive hand surgeons, neurologists, neurophysiologists, neuroradiologists, physical and occupational therapists.
