Brachial Plexus Injuries

As the nerves to your arm and hand exit the spinal cord they form an intricate network of cables. During high energy injuries, like the ones sustained during a motorcycle accident these nerves can be stretched or permanently injured.  These are devastating injuries and may need complex microsurgical procedures to graft or transfer healthy nerves to the damaged ones, or tendon transfers to regain some function in the affected limb.
