Dr. Bauer's bio

This content was provided by Dr. Bauer "Dr. Andrea Bauer came to Boston Children's Hospital after working at the Shriners Hospital for Children – Northern California and UC Davis Medical School. Her specialty is pediatric hand and upper limb surgery with a special interest in brachial plexus birth palsy. While at Shriners, Dr. Bauer directed the brachial plexus birth palsy (BPBP) program and focused on building a research plan to improve the care of children with BPBP. She received a competitive traveling fellowship in 2014 from the Ruth Jackson Orthopedic Society, and used this to visit three centers expert in the treatment of this condition, to bring these ideas from around North America back to Children's. Many of the advances in the care of children with BPBP in the last 20 years have originated at Boston Children's Hospital, and she hopes to continue that tradition. Dr. Bauer's current research focuses on early diagnosis of the types of nerve injuries associated with BPBP, with the goal to find treatments that can be applied earlier to improve outcomes."

Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Bauer ""Children are not simply little adults, as any parent knows. Children's orthopaedics is very different from adult orthopaedics – we need to work towards not only the child and family's current goals, but also plan for a lifetime of activity. The hospital can be a scary place for patients who are young, in pain, or in need of a nap. My goal is to combine patience and flexibility with knowledge of anatomy and child development to make your office and surgery experience as pleasant as possible.""

Dr Bauer performed an ERTT with scapula release on my son and he now has full function of his arm. She is the best!! Only wish she hadn't moved from CA!
