Brachial Plexus Injuries

The Leeds Teaching Hospitals NHS Trust (LTHT) is a regional centre for the treatment of brachial plexus injuries.
This page has been prepared by clinicians at this hospital to help you understand Brachial Plexus Injuries. If after reading this you have any other questions related to your injury please contact any member of the team.

What We Do

The Brachial Plexus Unit consists of a team of specialised doctors and clinicians who have expertise in the management of this injury.

After referral to our unit you will undertake a comprehensive assessment performed by a doctor as an inpatient on the ward or in one of our outpatient clinics. We will discuss with you your individualised treatment plan which may include surgical management (operating on you to repair your nerves) or non-operative management with physiotherapy and occupational therapy.

We will routinely review you in our Major Nerve Injury Clinic to assess how you are progressing following your injury and to assist you in optimising your recovery through advice, surgery or rehabilitation.

Please refer to the 'your condition and treatment' section for more information
