In addition to common peripheral nerve problems, we provide expertise and treat the most complex brachial plexus injuries.
Dr. Allan Peljovich, Dr. Joshua Ratner, and Dr. Bryce Gillespie are the surgeons for the Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta (CHOA) Brachial Plexus Program. This is a state-wide and regional referral program for treating children with brachial plexus injuries. We not only treat infants with brachial plexus birth injuries but also children and adolescents with brachial plexus injuries from traumatic events.
Dr. Peljovich and Dr. Gillespie are also the hand and upper extremity surgery consultants to Shepherd Center, one of the largest rehabilitation hospitals in the U.S. They also specialize in treating brachial plexus injuries in adults.
We coordinate therapy for nonsurgical treatment when needed, and when surgery is required, we perform nerve repair, nerve grafting, nerve transfers, or tendon transfers.
