The MILLESI Center for Brachial Plexus and Peripheral Nerve Surgery (& Rehabilitation) is based on 40 years worth of experience in care, research, and education in the very advanced treatment of Brachial Plexus and Peripheral Nerve Injuries by Prof. Hanno Millesi.

Comprehensive Treatment Concept

We aim to provide the highest quality of patient treatment for injuries to the peripheral nerves and of the hand. The patient is at the centre of a comprehensive treatment concept, including surgical procedures to the peripheral nerve, improving reconstructive operations and specialised rehabilitation.

After their injury, each patient shows an individual injury pattern, and is thus unique, requiring treatment adapted to the individual person.

Surgery of peripheral nerves

Lesions to the peripheral nerves may cause loss of motor, and/or sensory function. In addition, neuropathic pain may develop. Microsurgical procedures enable restoration of sensation and motor function.

Best care
by a team of specialized doctors

The MILLESI Center is part of the network of centers of medical expertise in the Wiener Privatklinik (Vienna Private Clinic). The micro-reconstruction and restorative surgery team headed by Prof. Dr. Hanno Millesi and Prof. Dr. Robert Schmidhammer cooperates in a network of specialists (physiotherapy, neurology, electrophysiology, radiology, and conservative pain specialists) dedicated to the field of peripheral nerves lesion and their functional consequences.

The two surgery specialists perform more than 250 complex microsurgical and reconstructive/restorative operations a year.
