Brachial Plexus Surgery

Brachial Plexus Surgery

Brachial plexus is a group of nerves that come from the spinal cord in the neck and travel down the arm. These nerves control the muscles of the shoulder, elbow, wrist and hand as well as provide feeling in the arm. Brachial Plexus is damaged due to stretching, pressure or cutting.

Types of Brachial Plexus Surgery

Nerve graft

In this procedure, the damaged part of the brachial plexus is removed and replaced with sections of nerves harvested from other parts of your body.

Nerve transfer

When the nerve root has been torn from the spinal cord, surgeons often take a less important nerve that’s still working and connect it to a nerve that’s more important but not working.

Muscle transfer

Muscle transfer is a procedure in which your surgeon removes a less important muscle or tendon from another part of your body, typically the thigh, transfers it to your arm, and reconnects the nerves and blood vessels supplying the muscle.


What can cause damage to the brachial plexus?

How long does it take for brachial plexus to heal?
