While each physician is highly skilled in his own right, an incredible synergy is created when they come together to solve a problem. Dr. Rose specializes in lower extremity nerve reconstruction, including neuropathy decompressions, Dr. Elkwood specializes in upper extremity nerve reconstruction, including nerve transplantation and brachial plexus reconstruction and Dr. Kaufman specializes in treatments for swallowing disorders after stroke, diaphragm paralysis, and spinal cord injuries. These are just a few of the factors that come together to provide patients with an unparalleled reconstructive team.
