ABOUT OUR PRESENTER: Dr. Hermanowicz spent the majority of his career as the Director of the Movement Disorders Program at the University of California, Irvine. He completed an Internship in Internal Medicine and a Neurology residency at the University of Wisconsin in Madison, Wisconsin. He then completed a Fellowship in Movement Disorders at the University of Michigan. In January of 2020 he moved to Santa Fe, NM to establish neurology services at Christus-St. Vincent Regional Medical Center. The first clinical trial that he submitted to the human subjects committee was in 1989 when he was a fellow and it was the study of a potent nerve poison called botulinum toxin, then also called Oculinum, to treat cervical dystonia. His most recent publication was earlier this year which involved a case in which abdominal migraine responded to Botox injection into the scalp.
