Breathing Again After Spinal Cord Injury
"[Phrenic Nerve Surgery] made such a difference in my well-being and mental and physical health," said 33-year-old William Marshall. "For someone with quadriplegia, that’s crucial. And with an injury like mine, you appreciate every win you can get.”
A Paralyzed Diaphragm Couldn’t Stop This Marathon Runner
“My paralyzed diaphragm went undiagnosed for years until I found Dr. Matthew Kaufman. My phrenic nerve surgery went great and I got really wonderful care. I still get calls from his team to check how I’m feeling. I’m so grateful for all of them.” — Adam Wernow, Long Island, N.Y.
