Brachial Plexus Unit offers the Children’s Hand Clinic.
In this clinic children will have the function of their arm regularly re-assessed by a multi-disciplinary team of staff. This team includes medical staff (Consultants and Registrars), Nursing staff, Clinical Psychologists, Physiotherapists and Occupational Therapists. Assessments in this clinic will aim to establish the level of recovery and whether therapy or surgery (this may include microvascular free muscle transfers, tendon transfers, osteotomies and arthrodesis) aimed at improving function is indicated. Frequently as the child’s arm develops secondary contractures can occur at the shoulder region and it may be necessary to perform surgery at this stage (predominantly form two years of age +).
This unit also has access to Imaging services and Neurophysiology services. For more information, phone numbers, etc, visit their Contact Us page.
