When someone talks about "brachial plexus and limb paralysis," they're referring to a situation where there's some injury or damage to the brachial plexus nerves, which results in a loss of movement and sensation in the affected arm or hand. This can happen due to various reasons such as trauma, stretching, or compression of the nerves during birth, accidents, or certain medical conditions.

As one of the only private practice plexus clinics in the United States and one of the most sought-after in the nation, we stand at the forefront of innovation in this specialized field.

At our clinic, we understand that brachial plexus injuries affect individuals across all walks of life and the very essence of our daily functioning, from the simplest tasks to the most complex movements. That's why our dedicated team is committed to providing comprehensive care that addresses your unique needs. 

In our clinic, we offer a range of treatment options tailored to your specific circumstances. Sometimes, observation and therapy are sufficient for recovery, while in other cases, surgical intervention may be necessary. We also offer a multi-surgeon approach where all doctors review and collaborate on the best methods for each patient. 

Our goal is not only to restore function but also to support you on your journey toward recovery and rehabilitation. With a commitment to excellence and a dedication to compassionate care, we are proud to be a beacon of hope for those facing brachial plexus injuries.
