Isaiah's medical and research interests began as an undergraduate after meeting veterans with amputations who were able to participate in community and athletic events thanks to specialized prosthetic devices. He decided on Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation for residency because of the specialty’s multimodal approach for providing wholistic care to patients with a variety of musculoskeletal and neurologic disabilities, including an embrace of technologic advances in adaptive devices.
Research Interest Summary
Neuroprosthetics, amputation rehabilitation, pain medicine
I am interested in applications of neuroprosthetics in a variety of rehab related populations, including patients with both upper and lower extremity amputations. I am additionally interested in the dual role that neurostimulation related devices, including spinal cord stimulation and peripheral nerve stimulation, can play in improving pain as well as function for patients.
