CRPS Walk for Awareness

Life is infinitely stranger than anything which the mind of man could invent.

– Sherlock Holmes


CRPS Walk for Awareness 2016

Dr. Philip Getson, DO is the host of the year’s walk. He has been practicing in New Jersey for the past 39 years. As a family practitioner, he became interested in CRPS in the 1990s. In the process of educating himself via literature conference, he made the acquaintance of Dr. Robert Schwartzman, Head of the Neurology at Hahnemann Hospital (Drexel University College of Medicine) in the mid-1990’s and the two of them collaborated on patients with this disorder until Dr. Schwartzman’s retirement in 2013. Together, they were responsible for constructing the protocols for Ketamine infusion therapy currently used nationwide.
