Andrea Bauer | Professional History
Dr. Andrea Bauer came to Boston Children’s Hospital in 2015 after beginning her career at the Shriners Hospital for Children – Northern California and UC Davis Medical School. Her specialty is pediatric hand, upper limb, and peripheral nerve surgery with a special interest in brachial plexus birth injury, congenital hand differences, and peripheral nerve injuries.
Dr. Bauer received a competitive traveling fellowship in 2014 from the Ruth Jackson Orthopaedic Society which she used to visit three centers expert in the treatment of brachial plexus birth injury and bring these ideas from around North America back to her patients.
Many of the advances in the care of children with BPBI in the last 20 years originated at Boston Children’s Hospital, and she hopes to continue that tradition. Dr. Bauer’s current research focuses on early diagnosis of the types of nerve injuries associated with BPBI with the goal to find treatments that can be applied earlier to improve outcomes.
