“One of the goals for the Center for Brachial Plexus and Traumatic Nerve Injury at Hospital for Special Surgery is to be a resource to hand and upper extremity medical professionals around the world.”
The Center for Brachial Plexus and Traumatic Nerve Injury is a nationally recognized health resource for men and women of all ages providing diagnostic and reconstructive options for patients with injuries or dysfunction of the peripheral nerve and brachial plexus.
Using a multidisciplinary approach, the Center utilizes the expertise of a wide range of health care professionals including orthopedic surgeons, physiatrists, neurologists, radiologists, psychiatrists, rheumatologists, pain management specialists, physical therapists, and anesthesiologists so that patients can benefit from a coordinated treatment experience.
In addition to improved patient treatment and outcomes, central to the mission of the Center is creating continuing education programs for the broader medical community. Primary care physicians, specialty physicians (including orthopedics, anesthesiology, neurology and physiatry), physical therapists, athletic trainers, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, residents, fellows and medical students will benefit from an increased understanding of brachial plexus anatomy, injury patterns and potential treatments.
You or your patient can call the Center by telephone weekdays between 9am and 5pm ET. On evenings and weekends, leave a voice message and we will return your call.
The HSS Education Institute offers a range of on-site professional and continuing medical education programs related to dysfunction of the peripheral nerve and brachial plexus.
