WVU neurologist to hold book signing

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – West Virginia University neurologist Lud Gutmann, M.D., will hold a signing of his book “The Immobile Man: A neurologist’s casebook.”

The signing will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Oct. 1 at the Health Sciences Center Bookstore, where the book is available for sale.

“The Immobile Man: A neurologist’s casebook” is a collection of 17 short stories that chronicle parts of Dr. Gutmann’s personal life, his medical training at Columbia University and the stories of some of the patients he has treated.

In the more than four decades he has spent at WVU, Gutmann has seen his share of patients from all walks of life with various diseases. And, more often than not, he has found that spending a little time getting to know the patient and his or her history can go a long way.

In his book, Gutmann cites two of many forces that helped him choose to specialize in neurology: solving mysteries and Parkinson’s disease. A self-described lover of mysteries, Gutmann said, “Neurology is one specialty where you still have to reason out what’s happening with a patient. Neurologists still talk to patients. It’s about finding the answer, the detective work.”
