The pediatric Brachial Plexus and Nerve Clinic at Children’s Hospital focuses on early intervention and treatment of injuries to this nerve network in the upper body. Our approach provides healing and recovery through therapy, with a pathway to surgery if needed.
We see patients the first Monday afternoon of each month at the Vanderbilt Children’s Neurosurgery clinic on the ninth floor.
Our rare but proven early intervention plan can help some children avoid future surgery, saving your family time and hospital costs. About 80 percent of our patients recover with no surgery.
Our team approach to care means your child has access to Vanderbilt’s specially trained experts in Neurosurgery, Neuromuscular Disorders, Hand and Upper Extremity Surgery, Occupational Therapy, Orthopaedics and Shoulder Surgery.
We educate you and your family physician about the best injury management and recovery practices to help your child heal sooner.
Our clinic follows your child as they grow. We find and treat ongoing challenges of brachial plexus injuries with therapy and treatments that match their age and development level.
