Summary
Dr. Susan E. Mackinnon is a plastic surgeon whose pioneering work in nerve transfer surgery is restoring movement to limbs that many doctors believe to be permanently paralyzed. Loren was 15 when she was brutally stabbed five times, severing the nerves in her neck. Michael faced a similar, dead-end diagnosis after a freak chain saw accident paralyzed his arm. Chelsey survived a horrific late-night car accident, but her arm is also now useless. A Spark of Nerve follows the charismatic Mackinnon and several of these patients for three years as their emotional stories unfold{u2014}from trauma and disappointment to hope and finally joy, as freedom of movement is slowly regained.. Mackinnon is committed to sharing her groundbreaking surgical 2recipes3 and is creating a military funded teaching website for all surgeons anywhere in the world. With rare access, we visit the Walter Reed Peripheral Nerve Clinic in Maryland to see how nerve transfers are being used to help wounded soldiers returning from the Middle East conflicts. A SPARK OF NERVE will inspire the millions with nerve injuries to not lose hope and to seek out these little known but life-changing surgeries
