- Nerve transfer surgery where a less vital nerve that is still working is transferred and connected to a nerve that is of greater importance but is no longer working.
- Muscle transfer surgery where a less important muscle or tendon is positioned to replace a more important one that is no longer functioning. This surgery will also reconnect the nerves and blood vessels that supply the muscle.
These birth injury surgical procedures are common in brachial plexus injuries. Your son or daughter may require a different type of surgical procedure.
