They use advanced surgical techniques, like targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR) or regenerative peripheral nerve interface (RPNI). We also partner with prosthetic vendors across Nebraska to improve the quality of life for patients with amputations in upper extremities.

Nebraska Medicine specialists are leaders in research in treating complex injuries involving the hand and upper extremities. In conjunction with the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC), we perform clinical research backed by the National Institutes of Health and institutional grants to push the boundaries of nerve injury repair and advanced bioprosthetics.
