“The Role of Peripheral Nerve Surgery in Restoring Motor Control
Following Neurotrauma”

Dr. Brown specializes in peripheral nerve and spinal neurosurgery. In his practice at UCSD, he works with other surgeons on his team to perform tendon and nerve transfer procedures aimed at restoring hand function in patients with tetraplegic spinal cord injury. While tendon transfers are currently the most common procedure used, nerve transfers are a newer technique and may provide advantages for some patients.
