Philosophy of Care
I provide detailed, individualized care to patients in the neuro-ICU. My patients, and their families, are often going through the most difficult challenge of their lives and I am there to help them through the storm. We use multiple modes of monitoring to allow us to individualize our treatment plans for each patient. Our goal is to prevent further injury and to optimize recovery.
As a neurointensivist, Dr. Martin sees patients with neurological disease that requires ICU level care. This includes such diseases as traumatic brain injury, spinal cord injury, subarachnoid hemorrhage, intracerebral hemorrhage, stroke, neuromuscular weakness, and status epilepticus.
Dr. Martin focuses on providing cutting-edge neuro-monitoring to optimize care and provide a path for patients, and their families, to fully recover.
Dr. Martin has research interests in treatment of status epilepticus and traumatic brain injury. He is also active in teaching neurology and neurosurgical residents, as well as pulmonary-critical care fellows.
