What We Offer

Texas Brachial Plexus Institute

The Texas Brachial Plexus Institute, located in the heart of The Texas Medical Center in Houston, is a multidisciplinary team of physicians and support staff, consisting of reconstructive peripheral nerve surgeons, neuroelectrophysiologists, physiotherapists, orthopedic hand and shoulder specialists, physical and occupational therapists, and nurses who are dedicated to the treatment and research of brachial plexus injury. All of us have been involved with the care of brachial plexus patients since we trained at Texas Children’s Hospital in the late 1990’s, and have worked with each other for many years. Our staff and physicians have the experience to answer your questions and concerns, and help you with all you necessary arrangements.

Our mission at Texas BPI is to help children and adults with brachial plexus injuries world wide, with innovative treatments based in research and experience.

Dr. Armenta & Berzin

Drs. Armenta and Berzin are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and both have completed a microsurgery and peripheral nerve surgery fellowship at Baylor College of Medicine in Houston with Dr. Saleh M. Shenaq, a recognized leader in the field of brachial plexus surgery. In their residency and practice, they have treated thousands of patients with brachial plexus injuries and have written numerous articles, presented world wide, and have created innovative techniques in the treatment of brachial plexus injury. It was Dr Shenaq’s final request before his passing that they continue his clinic and his work with children and adults who have this devastating injury.

Lisa Thompson

Lisa Thompson has a wealth of experience working with brachial plexus families. For 12 years she was the brachial plexus surgery coordinator for the Brachial Plexus Team at Texas Childrens Hospital working very closely with Lisa Davis, RN. In 2007, Mrs. Thompson joined the practice of Dr. Berzin and Dr. Armenta to continue the legacy of the work of the late Dr. Saleh Shenaq. Lisa is an invaluable source of information for families that are planning their trip here to Houston to visit our team. She schedules all appointments, surgeries and works closely with families and their insurance companies to make this process as easy and uncomplicated as possible. “The day to day contact I have with brachial plexus patients, both children and adults is a very rewarding part of my job and I am so pleased to be working with the “team” once again!
