Daughter suffers a brachial plexus injury from birth

Posted by @qayahsmom, Sep 26, 2016

My daughter got stuck in the birth canal and was pulled out by her head damaging all 5 root endings of her brachial plexus, at birth. Thus resulting in no movement of her wrist, hand and fingers. She moves her arm with her shoulder muscles and has already had a mod quad surgery performed by Dr.Nath, in 2010. Are there any new procedures, that you are aware of that may help her gain movement in her wrist, hand/fingers? Any information will be appreciated, thank you♡

Welcome @qayahsmom. Connect is an online community where you can share your experiences, ask questions, get tips and find support from other patients. I’m tagging @kanyonkick @bessygo and @susanacj to bring them into this discussion as they have talked about brachial plexus injury here in the community.

Should you wish to get a second opinion at Mayo Clinic, you’ll find the contact information of all 3 campuses at this link http://mayocl.in/1mtmR63

Yes, Jacksonville FL, Phoenix AZ and Rochester MN are the 3 campuses. Call the appointment department and they will work with you, review your daughter’s medical history with Mayo Clinic experts and propose options. All the best.

Thank you. We live 2.5 hours from Jacksonville, making the trip is not a problem if it is a comprehensive appt.

Hi @qayahsmom,
I did some scoping about for you. Mayo Clinic performs hundreds of brachial plexus procedures annually. We have specialists at all 3 campuses including Jacksonville. You can find more information about brachial plexus care at Mayo Clinic here: http://mayocl.in/2dC9MZj This page also includes additional links to research and patient success stories including this one: http://mayocl.in/2dgmJpM. I’m also sending you a PM.
