Former Quadriplegic Patient Able to Walk Out of Methodist Rehabilitation Hospital
Date:6/10/2009

DALLAS, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- When he arrived at Methodist Rehabilitation Hospital Oct. 20, 2008, Michael Hulshouser was a quadriplegic, stricken by Guillain-Barre Syndrome and barely able to lift his head. Four months later, under the care of his physician, therapist and the rehabilitation staff, the 48-year-old father of two was able to walk by himself with the aid of a walker. "My son said that all he wanted for Christmas was for me to be able to walk," says Hulshouser. "Three weeks after Christmas and three days before my birthday I was able to do that."

Hulshouser says the Methodist Rehabilitation Hospital staff has done wonderful things for him. "I had given up," he says. "They brought me back." He also says the hospital has great food and the chef honored any special requests he made. "I gained over 25 pounds while I was there," he says. The great food, he says, lifted his spirits and aided in his recovery.

"Mr. Hulshouser was diagnosed with Guillain-Barre Syndrome which is a rare neurological disorder that can cause weakness, numbness, and in some cases complete paralysis," says Bobby Huynh, MD, a physical medicine and rehabilitation specialist on the medical staff at Methodist Health System. "Through hard work, perseverance and the physical and occupational therapy he received at Methodist Rehabilitation Hospital, Mr. Hulshouser made a miraculous recovery from being quadriplegic to being able to walk again. The rehabilitation he received has given him a new lease on life."
