Our doctors also specialize in the care of nerve injuries of the hand, wrist, elbow, arm, shoulder, and throughout the leg. While many of these injuries can recover with time and observation, it is important to have an expert evaluate these injuries and ensure that healing is occurring in an appropriate fashion.
There are times when immediate surgery is the best treatment for an injury and other times when surgery may be the answer only after adequate time has passed, but you do not want to miss the opportunity to make the appropriate treatment decision for your child. Let our experts help guide you through these injuries from start to finish.
Our doctors are experienced with microsurgical nerve repair, nerve grafting surgery, and nerve transfer surgery. They also perform other reconstructive surgeries, such as tendon transfer surgery.
