Patient is 2 months from a decompression of the brachial plexus in the neck. All of the branches of the brachial plexus were compressed or pinched under the scalene anticus muscle -- a small unnecessary muscle in the neck. This muscle was removed in the neck to decompress the nerve. He has had a tremendous response to this operation. We are very pleased. He is back to work with out pain, without numbness, and without medication.
