Tendon transfer surgery aims to improve lost hand, wrist or elbow function, whether due to nerve or spinal cord injury, muscle injury or damage, or nervous system disorders such as cerebral palsy, stroke and brain injuries.
Tendons are the sinewy cords that connect muscle to bone and help the muscle cause joint movement. During a tendon transfer procedure, the tendons of a working muscle are transferred to a paralysed muscle so they can take over its function. It can restore a person’s ability to straighten and bend their elbow and wrist and their ability to grip with their fingers and hand.
