THE BRACELET AND PERIPHERAL NERVES RECONSTRUCTION DEPARTMENT
Centre for Brachial Plexus and Peripheral Nerve Reconstruction at Orthos Hospital is an original project by Prof. Jerzy Gosk, MD PhD, and Dr. Jacek Martynkiewicz, MD PhD, recognised experts in the field of peripheral nerve reconstruction.
As part of the centre’s activities, the Expert Team performs such procedures as diagnosis and surgical treatment of diseases and injuries of the upper limbs, hand surgery, peripheral nerve surgery, microsurgery and multi-tissue reconstructions in terms of the locomotor system.
Peripheral nerve damage usually occurs as a result of accidents, gunshots, bone fractures near the nerves, and compression. The surgical methods of treating peripheral nerve damage depend on the location, type, time of injury and mechanism of injury. Surgery outcomes are influenced by the patient’s age, the time between injury and surgery, the size of the nerve defect, as well as the level and degree of damage.
The nerve regenerative potential is the greatest in young and middle-aged people. Above the age of 65, it becomes weaker. This does not rule out the chance of improvement in older people, but it is usually lower.
We would like to invite you to read detailed information about selected procedures carried out by Prof. Jerzy Gosk, MD PhD, and Dr. Jacek Martynkiewicz, MD PhD, in our hospital, and to make an appointment with experts through our Reception Desk at 71 73 58 700 (Monday to Friday, 7:00 a.m. – 6:00 p.m.) or via the Znany Lekarz website profiles of our specialists:
