My name is Danish Bhatti and I will be hosting many of these episodes. I am working as an Assistant professor in Neurology in University of Nebraska Medical Center or UNMC for short, after completing my residency and fellowship at UNMC. I had great fun learning about MD and found it very exciting. There were times when I felt like Sherlock Holmes. And this has been an amazing journey for me and now I want to share the excitement of the journey with you guys as you move along in your career. At the same time I’m confident that you will find this extremely useful and practical in your life.
Life in movement disorders is amazing. You get to take care of some of the most kind and grateful patients and hear most amazing stories of success from them. You get to work with some of the most advanced treatment strategies such as use of botulinum toxin injections and deep brain stimulation surgery which is one of the most rapidly evolving frontiers in neurology. You can achieve amazing results with your patient which is deeply satisfying. You play a detective solving some of the toughest mysteries of involuntary movements and few of the most complex syndromes. But once you solve them the rewards are awesome. Let’s hear from some of the finest minds in movement disorders that I get to work with everyday.
