Lesions to the peripheral nervous system:

  • Brachial plexus
  • Nerves of the upper extremity
  • Lumbosacral plexus
  • Nerves of the lower extremity

Complications after nerve lesions:

  • Restoration of peripheral nerve gliding using gliding tissue flaps
  • Nerve transplantation for restoration of nerve continuity
  • Nerve fiber transfer including end-to-side nerve fiber transfer
  • Restoration of function using multiple tendon and muscle transfer
  • Restoration of muscle balance
  • Arthrolysis (adhesiolysis of articular agglutination)
  • Tenolysis (adhesiolysis of sinews)
  • Joint fusion for improved all-over function
  • Reconstruction through skin transplantation and tissue transfer

Pain syndromes caused by:

  • Irritation of a nerve
  • Spontaneously caused by an operation/injury

Reconstructive surgery of skin and paratenon

Compression syndromes of peripheral nerves

  • Median nerve compression syndromes like
    – Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS)
    – Pronator Teres Syndrome
  • Ulnar nerve compression syndromes
    – Syndrome de Loge de Guyon
    – Sulcus Nervi Ulnaris Syndrome
  • Radial nerve compression syndromes like
    – Supinator Syndrome
  • Suprascapularis Syndrome
  • Thoracic outlet Syndrome (TOS)
  • Tarsal tunnel Syndrome (TTS)
  • Meralgia paraesthetica
  • Others
