Nerve Grafting for Pressure Sores
Recurrent pressure sores in individuals with spinal cord inury become very difficult to treat unless sensation can be returned to areas where the pressure sores are located. In the past the idea of recovering sensation in paralyzed individuals was believed impossible.
The doctors at The Institute for Advanced Reconstruction are performing a groundbreaking procedure intended to restore sensation to the hip and buttock areas in paraplegics with recurrent pressure sores. Nerve grafting is performed in conjunction with flap surgery to treat the pressure sore and provide the opportunity for sensory recovery.
Please contact The Institute for Advanced Reconstruction in New Jersey for information about this groundbreaking nerve reconstruction procedure for those suffering with spinal cord injury and pressure sores.
