The Orthopedic Center's Brachial Plexus Program at Boston Children’s Hospital is a national and international referral center for children with brachial plexus birth palsy. The brachial plexus is a network of nerves that runs from the cervical spinal cord to the muscles of the upper limb. Brachial plexus birth palsy refers to an injury to these nerves sustained during childbirth.

Our approach to brachial plexus birth palsy

Boston Children’s Brachial Plexus Program is one of the world’s major centers for brachial plexus birth palsy treatment. The program stands virtually alone in providing the entire spectrum of brachial plexus birth palsy care — from early nerve surgery, to early therapy, to later reconstructive orthopedic surgery and therapy if needed.

Our team of experts specialize in brachial plexus birth palsy, providing the entire spectrum of care, so we can follow your child closely throughout treatment and recovery. Using a research and innovation driven approach, our surgeons, nurses and therapists have cared for thousands of patients with brachial plexus birth palsy.

Clinical Effectiveness Research Center

The Clinical Effectiveness Research Center (CERC) helps coordinate research and clinical trials to improve the quality of life for children with musculoskeletal disorders. This collaborative clinical research program is unique in the nation and plays an instrumental role in establishing — for the first time — evidence-based standards of care for pediatric orthopedic patients throughout the world.

The Brachial Plexus Program and the Clinical Effectiveness Research Center work together to coordinate and fund the imperative research and innovation that is progressing the treatment of brachial plexus birth palsy.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
