Dr. Patrick Brennan has spent his career researching and treating medical complications of stroke, traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, cerebral palsy and other insults to the central nervous system. From 2000 until 2008 Patrick was on the Harvard faculty and Massachusetts General Hospital staff as the medical director of the Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital's pediatric inpatient unit, [one of the two largest in the country]. He completed his fellowship at the Univ. of Michigan, residency at the Univ. of Kentucky and medical school at the Univ. of Texas. His chosen discipline as a rehabilitation specialist has focused his work on spasticity. Currently, Patrick is working part-time as an independent contractor at Tufts Medical Center's Floating Hospital for Children. This role allows sufficient time and intellectual freedom to pursue his goal as the Chief Scientist of Birch Tree Medical, Inc. while continuing to evaluate and treat spasticity on a routine basis.
