Brachial Plexus Surgery by Anthony MacQuillan

As one of only four dedicated consultant peripheral nerve surgeons in the UK, Anthony MacQuillan provides world-class nerve and tumour surgery.

Brachial Plexus Surgery stands as a significant intervention in the field of nerve repair and reconstruction.

It’s tailored to address the intricate issues associated with the brachial plexus, which, due to its complexity, requires a nuanced understanding and approach. This surgery is not just a medical procedure; it’s a journey towards regaining control and functionality of one’s arm and hand, profoundly impacting an individual’s daily life and activities.

When you’re facing challenges with movement or enduring persistent pain in your arm, shoulder, or hand, it’s possible that the brachial plexus nerves have been compromised. These nerves are like the electrical wiring of your limb, sending signals from your spine to your shoulder, arm, and hand. Damage to these nerves can result from various causes, including traumatic injuries, such as those from vehicular accidents or severe falls, or could be due to medical conditions that affect nerve health.

The goal is to restore as much function as possible and alleviate pain, which in turn can have a transformative effect on your ability to engage in everyday tasks and enjoy a more active lifestyle.
