Pediatric Brachial Plexus and Nerve Clinic

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.
