Clinical Interest for Patients
My primary clinical interests include cerebral palsy, spasticity/dystonia management, pediatric stroke, neuromuscular disorders and congenital muscular torticollis.
My goal is to help children attain their highest functional potential. I strive to care for my patients in the most thorough and empathetic way possible. I think it is important to focus on the child's ability rather than their disability.
