My approach to treating patients

I have dedicated my professional career to developing new treatments to improve function and quality of life for persons with neurologic diseases and injuries. Neuro-Orthopaedics is a subspecialty of orthopaedic surgery that treats the musculoskeletal (muscle, tendon, bone and joint) consequences of neurologic disease. Neurologic disorders that commonly cause orthopaedic problems include: " Stroke " Brain injury " Spinal cord injury " Cerebral palsy " Multiple sclerosis " Polio " Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease

Many orthopaedic problems occur as a complication of nervous system disorders and injuries. These orthopaedic problems include: " Muscle spasticity " Weakness " Contractures " Heterotopic bone Neuro-Orthopaedics is an approach to patient care that focuses on recovering lost function. The goal is to improve performance in a person with a permanent disability or chronic disease. This leads to improvement in the quality of life for the patient and their caretakers. Neuro-Orthopaedics views the functional problems of a patient in relation to the entire musculoskeletal system and not by a limb or joint.
