Question:

What should I do if my child suffered a brachial plexus injury during birth?

Answer:

Brachial Plexus InjuriesWe’ve had multiple cases of brachial plexus injuries during birth. What’s important to know is these cases are typically easy to avoid had the physician followed the standard of care. A brachial plexus injury occurs when a baby gets stuck, the physician doesn’t apply the right techniques, pulls too hard, and ends up stretching or injuring the brachial plexus nerve, which comes from the spine down the arm, and gives a child a limp arm.
These are very significant, catastrophic injury cases. Tendon and nerve replacement surgeries may help to get more use out of the child’s arms. These are very avoidable cases that can have long-term effects on the young baby as they develop into an adult.
