About : Dr. Paul Jordan

Dr. Jordan has been a physician-surgeon in pediatric biomechanics, orthoses and surgery for children with neuromuscular and neuromotor disorders since 1979.

After extensive medical training in general pediatrics which included pediatric dermatology, endocrinology, neurology, developmental pediatrics and surgery at NYU, Cornell and Columbia Universities, additional training was undertaken in pediatric orthopedics and surgery (with emphasis on lower extremity and foot) at Babies Hospital (Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons) and Atlanta Hospital.

Upon completion of post-graduate training, Dr. Jordan completed a pediatric fellowship training throughout the U.S. included clinical study and practice with Dr. H. Kite [pediatric clubfeet], Dr. Oliver Sacks [neurology], Dr. Mihran O.Tachdjian [pediatric orthopedics] and Dr.Jacquelin Perry [pediatric orthopedics-biomechanics].
He later became skilled in various surgical approaches and spent over 15 years performing selective percutaneous fascial lengthening while working with Dr. Roy Nuzzo.

During this same time period Dr. Jordan developed techniques of motion analysis that was applied during his teaching at the Bobath Center in London and other medical facilities worldwide to include Israel, Ireland, Denmark, China, Hong Kong and throughout the United States.

Later, Dr. Jordan worked with Dr. Warwick Peacock (UCLA) , Dr. Lila Arens (South Africa) and Dr. Fred Epstein (NYU) as SDR (Selective Dorsal Rhizotomy was introduced as a spinal neurosurgical procedure for the relief of spasticity for children with cerebral palsy).

A two year fellowship program in cerebral palsy and neuromuscular disorders under the auspices of Cornell and Columbia Universities in conjunction with NY State United Cerebral Palsy Association ultimately defined the focus of his practice over the next 35 years.

Less than a handful of practitioners in the world have their entire practice devoted to podopediatrics and only one in the world to children with cerebral palsy.
