The concepts of Evidence Based Medicine have been the cornerstone of Dr. Dillin's education during his spine surgery fellowship in Neurosurgery and Orthopaedic Surgery and the format for decision making in his subsequent practice.

The critical analytic features inherent in the "best evidence" approach to patients have permeated his writing and his lectures, allowing flexible adaptation as the science has changed. The combination of logical clinical analysis based on these principles, and twenty five years of experience exclusively devoted to spine surgery and spine related problems, allows specialty focus on any Independent Medical Evaluations or Medical-Legal Reviews.

    There are many wrist and hand symptoms related to the multiple tunnels that tendons, nerves, and blood vessels pass through. Wherever there is a "crease" in one's wrist, palm, or fingers on the flexor/volar side, there is a tunnel that these structures must pass through. These tunnels are usually soft transverse tissue bands that keep the tendons from bowstringing as they pass from forearm to fingers, as we use our hands in grasp and function.

Although this and subsequent twin transplants did little to solve the problem of rejection, these procedures contributed to proving the value of the procedure and to the solution of many technical problems.

    Shallow Water Blackout (SWB) vs. Hyperventilation-Induced Blackout (HIB)....

    TWO BOYS, age 11, are ice skating at a local pond. Suddenly, the ice cracks and one boy falls through into 34 degree Fahrenheit water. His friend runs to his aid, and potential tragedy grows as the second boy is pulled into the ice cold water by the panic stricken child already in the water. Unless help is immediately available, both boys will perish within a few minutes, either from drowning or hypothermia (decreased body temperature).

    Based on a 1961 study at Williamston, MI, conducted by the Michigan State Police, the Indiana University Health and Safety Department, the Michigan Highway Department, and the American Red Cross, it was estimated that approximately 400 persons lose their lives as a result of being trapped in automobiles that have plunged into the water.
