Peripheral Nerve

The surgical management of traumatic brachial plexus and peripheral nerve injuries has evolved dramatically over the past three decades.  Washington University Neurosurgeons work with a multidisciplinary group of surgeons, neurologists, and therapists to customize patient treatments to maximize functional outcomes.  Washington University Neurosurgeons have extensive expertise in advance microsurgical reconstructive techniques and are on the forefront for new innovative ways to improve patient outcomes.

Conditions treated include:

Peripheral Nerve Injuries
Brachial Plexus and/or Spinal Nerve Root Tumors
Nerve Transfers for Spinal Cord Injury

The Brachial Plexus Center at St. Louis Children's Hospital also offers comprehensive treatment for infants and children diagnosed with birth brachial plexus palsy or injury.


Neurosurgeons, plastic surgeons and neurologists review cases several times a month to determine an optimal treatment plan. Physicians wishing to submit cases for review should contact Dr. Ray’s nurse coordinator Ellen Carlson at (314) 747-6560.
