Kendal Stewart, M.D.— Neurotologist and Neuro Immune Specialist
It was last fall that I first heard Dr. Kendal Stewart speak. I remember the moment so very vividly—and will for the rest of my life.
I sat in the middle of our living room floor and watched this clip on Neuro-Immune Disorders. Five minutes into it I was in tears. This doctor was talking about MY child, MY Little Man—and he hadn’t even met him.
That evening I played it for my husband—his reaction was similar. After watching the video and listening to Dr. Stewarts podcasts, we were convinced that we needed him to see our Little Man. Could he be the one to find the “missing piece of the puzzle” that no one else had?
Last week our family flew to Austin and visited with Dr. Stewart. As he does in this video, he gave us hope that more could be done.
Dr. Stewart is a skull-based surgeon turned self-professed biochemical geek. The way and rate by which he can rattle off genetic mutations, how they are manifested and what can be done to address them absolutely blew me away. He is a God-fearing teacher of medicine—a rare find in our world.
When you have a child with unique challenges and no “real” diagnosis, the road to finding answers can be long and frustrating. If this video provides an “aha” moment for you, the mission of this post was accomplished.
