I had charcot about two years ago and was told I would not walk again.  I 
was directed by a freind (who's sister also had the problem) to a Dr. 
Pedowitz in Linden NJ who is supposedly the world expert specialist on 

He has written what is supposedly the textbook on it, lectures all over the 
world, and still finds time to see and help many patients with the 
condition.  He got me back on my feet after about three months in a soft 
cast using a brace and after 18 months I got rid of brace!!

I still have to go for check-up every couple of months but this is far 
better than not being able to walk (which is what the doctor who finally 
figured out it was charcot told me).
