Since 1991, our
Brachial Plexus Center at the St. Louis Children's Hospital has evaluated
and treated over 700 hundred children with birth brachial plexus injury
and performed repair of the brachial plexus on over a 150 infants.
At our multidisciplinary Center, children are examined by a team of pediatric
neurosurgeons, neurologists, and therapists. An orthopaedic surgeon specializing
in hand surgery and a pediatric neurologist also work with children who
have persistent muscle weakness.
