Surgical interventions for upper-extremity reconstruction can improve function for people with catastrophic spinal cord or brain injuries who have limited function in their arms, wrists and hands.
Brachial Plexus Surgery: Depending on the type and location of the brachial plexus injury, surgery may be recommended to repair the brachial plexus. Surgery may involve the removal of damaged nerves, nerve grafts or transferring a nerve from its original attachment to another nerve site, which then restores functional ability.
Tendon Transfer Surgery is a surgical option that is commonly used to effectively restore arm, wrist and hand functions, such as wrist extension, grip and pinch. Surgery involves transferring a muscle with good strength from its original attachment to another muscle site, which then restores functional ability.
Surgery for Orthopedic Issues: The clinic also offers surgical options for other orthopedic-related issues, such as carpal tunnel syndrome, overuse syndromes, contractures and trauma-related issues.
