One of the most devastating consequences of a stroke is losing the ability to move one side of the body. The arm will hang and be completely or partially non-functional, making it extremely difficult to carry out day-to-day tasks. For some, the problem will improve spontaneously with time, however for many stroke sufferers the problem may be permanent.
At the Institute for Advanced Reconstruction, our world famous surgeons have pioneered treatments to reverse arm paralysis in stroke patients. In fact, we are the first and only center in the nation and probably in the world to successfully perform nerve reconstructive surgery in a stroke patient. Our early success in the first patient has made us committed to advancing this as a treatment for the thousands of stroke sufferers living with arm paralysis.
