Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In the past decade, sensory reeducation has been widely accepted and applied in patients recovering from nerve injury. The results available for analysis in the few published studies suggest that it is a useful adjunct in patients following nerve repair. The percent of patients achieving the highest level of recovery (S4) and the savings in time (two years instead of five) required to reach this level, are strong testimony to the usefulness of sensory reeducation.
