    Personal profile

    Research interests

    My clinical/research interest includes over 30 years of experience in the investigation of peripheral nerve injury and regeneration. My clinical practice is solely devoted to the treatment of peripheral nerve injury. My clinical and research experience includes performing the first clinical nerve allograft procedure, establishment of the factors critical for nerve regeneration through nerve allografts, and the systematic development of a series of metrics used to experimentally assess and quantify peripheral nerve regeneration. I've established both the Center for Nerve Injury and Paralysis and the Peripheral Nerve Surgical Research Laboratory at Washington University.

    Clinical interests

    Peripheral nerve surgery in hand/upper extremity and lower extremity, carpal tunnel syndrome, tarsal tunnel syndrome, thoracic outlet syndrome, brachial plexus, cumulative trauma disorder, nerve transplant, nerve compression, facial palsy, hand and upper extremity disorders and injuries
