Your Physician told you that your baby may have sustained a birth injury. What do you do?
In the U.S. approximately 2 babies in every 1,000 sustain a birth injury. That’s more than 20 babies and 40 new parents a day. Their life long challenge has just started and none of them are prepared.
Especially for young parents having their first baby, a Brachial Plexus injury is an overwhelming event that brings about a tremendous amount of fear and confusion. Amid the roller coaster of emotions, seeking expert help and getting your baby properly diagnosed is the first priority.
Dr. Price is a world renowned expert in the field. In his over 30 years of practice, Dr. Price has cared for over 2,000 patients with birth injuries including Brachial Plexus, Erb’s Palsy, Cephalohematoma, Caput Succedaneum and Bone Fractures.
Things you need to prepare before your first visit.
If there are any pertinent xrays, MRI, or ultrasound tests, please provide copies of the test and if possible the accompanying report. If any blood tests were done, these results may be helpful as well.
Dr. Price believes in communicating with any of the patient’s primary care and/or consulting physicians. Please have the name and contact information of any health care provider to whom you would like a letter sent.

“After three false diagnoses from other orthopedic surgeons, we found Dr. Price and finally received a diagnosis that was correct and well-informed. We don’t know what we would have done without him. His medical knowledge supersedes that of many doctors I have been to. Since that first visit, my daughter has suffered from quite a few other injuries, and Dr. Price has always been a source of knowledge and help with her ailments.”
