I would like to utilize the knowledge and experience gained (abroad and in India) in the management of brachial plexus injuries for restoration of function in these young patients with paralysed upper limbs. My aim is to spread information about this condition and about the modalities of reconstruction that are currently available and that I practice regularly. Although normalcy cannot be restored in cases with total paralyses, some active motion can certainly be regained by timely surgery.


Dr. Anil Bhatia did his basic medical qualification from LTM Medical College, Sion, Mumbai (MBBS from Bombay University in October 1985). He completed his post-graduate qualification in Orthopaedics from LTM General Hospital, Sion, Mumbai (MS from Bombay University in January 1990). Residency training included 9 months in plastic surgery under Dr. R. L. Thatte at LTM General Hospital, Sion.

Dr.Bhatia participated in evaluation before surgery, surgery and evaluation at varying periods after the operation. This provided a detailed insight to clinical patterns of brachial plexus injuries, indications for surgery, surgical techniques, delay in appearance of results and quality of function restored in different situations. In addition, they also noted the need for secondary operations to improve the utility of the restored function.
