The Brachial Plexus Clinic provides care for children who have a problem with the nerves that go to their arm – most often brachial plexus palsy. Our clinic is the only one of its kind for children in the Northwest. A team of providers from many areas of healthcare assesses each child who comes to the clinic. The team includes doctors from our Orthopedics and Plastic Surgery departments, as well as from Neurology and Radiology. Nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, social workers and others also play important roles in caring for children with brachial plexus problems.
Your team creates a treatment plan designed to get the best results for your child. We base our treatment plans on the latest evidence about which treatments are most likely to help and when they should be used. Some children need ongoing care for brachial plexus problems. We follow these patients throughout childhood, adapting their treatment plan as their needs change.
