Stiff Person DIsease
Treatment by Dr Saul Geffen
Dr Geffen sought advice from neurology colleagues at Mater Private Hospital in Brisbane, who diagnosed our patient with Stiff Person Syndrome, a one-in-a-million condition that had paralysed Mrs Hodges below the waist and left her unable to move her legs or feet due to very severe spasticity and dystonia.
