Peripheral Nerve Surgery
The Stanford Division of Plastic Surgery is dedicated to providing comprehensive care for those patients with peripheral nerve injuries. Peripheral nerve injuries can occur through out the body and result in loss of function and chronic pain.
Peripheral nerve injury care requires a wide range of skills to obtain the best functional outcomes. This care starts from the acute injury (nerve repair, graft or transfer) and may continue to later reconstructive surgeries (tendon/ muscle transfers). The Stanford Plastic Surgeons can provide care at each stage of recovery to restore function after peripheral nerve injury.
To provide the best care, we work closely with a multidisciplinary group of specialists; including therapists, pain specialists, neurologists and physiatrists to ensure complete care of the patient. We have a long tradition of innovation and clinical excellence in the care of peripheral nerve injuries. Our group has studied nerve care, performed laboratory research, trained future nerve surgeons and continues to work on newest innovations in the field.
