To date, approximately 301 nerve transplants have been performed in the world. About one-third of those operations were performed at The Institute for Advanced Reconstruction in New Jersey. Our surgeons are on the cutting edge of modern nerve surgery; there are few places in the world where one can find such a combination of knowledge, skill and experience.
Nerve transplantation surgery can help patients who have suffered an injury to the nerve plexuses in the arm or leg. The surgeons at The Institute for Advanced Reconstruction can use this procedure to restore function in patients who have nerves so severely damaged that no other treatment options can help.
When we perform a nerve transplantation surgery, we work closely with an expert team of transplant specialists, neurologists, immunologists, and infectious diseases specialists. This allows us to provide the highest quality care and best possible results to our patients.
