Dana Lott, DPT, NCS, is Duke's "Blue Devil of the Week"
Name: Dana Lott
Title: Physical Therapist, Neurology, Duke University Hospital
Years at Duke: 3
What she does at Duke: Dana Lott finds immense satisfaction in helping patients in Duke Neurology’s inpatient unit navigate the early stages of trying to rebuild the connection between their brains and their bodies.
Lott’s patients are being treated for brain injuries, have recently had brain surgery, or are dealing with conditions that have compromised brain function. She gets them moving in ways that begin the healing process. Her challenge is to figure out the best approach, since each diagnosis, each patient and each situation can be different.
