Care Philosophy

This content was provided by Dr. Liedtke Both as a physician and as a scientist my focus is to understand the mechanisms critical for pain to alleviate the suffering of patients who are afflicted by therapy-refractory pain. I focus on trigeminal and other cranial nerve (glossopharyngeal) pain disorders. As a laboratory-based scientist I maintain a research agenda in sync with my clinical focus taking advantage of methodology from molecular biology physiology and biomedical engineering. In my laboratory I intend to understand how calcium influx regulates pain. This applies to both physiological pain which is a healthy mechanism that has given our species a survival advantage and to pathological pain which can torment patients. In my clinical practice I continue to learn from my patients. I hope I can understand their suffering from a special perspective because of my specific training and research background.

Patient Comments (1)

The most brilliant, kind, and sympathetic doctor I have ever known. Highly, highly recommend. I cannot say enough good things about him and the staff. An above average wait time, but I would wait even longer for him.
