Stephanie Robinett, M.D., a pediatric neurologist at Wesley Medical Center, recently co-authored an article in the international scientific journal Developmental Medicine and Child Neurology.
The article, “Neuromuscular Hip Dysplasia in Charcot-Marie-Tooth Disease Type 1A,” is featured in the journal’s May 2009 issue.
“Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) is one of the most common inherited neurological disorders,” Robinett says. “CMT typically begins with weakness and pain in the lower extremities which can cause difficulty walking.” About 60 percent of all CMT patients suffer from Type 1A.
Robinett, a native of New Orleans, received her medical degree from the University of Mississippi School of Medicine. She completed her pediatric residency at Wake Forest University Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, N.C., and then finished her pediatric neurology fellowship at the University of Washington Pediatric Residency Program in Seattle, Wash. She is a member of the American Academy of Neurology and the Child Neurology Society.
Robinett treats neurological conditions in patients who range in age from newborns to 21 years old.
