Frontiers in Neurosurgery and Neuromodulation

On November 3-4, 2022, the University of Pittsburgh Department of Neurological Surgery will co-sponsor a Frontiers in Neurosurgery and Neuromodulation symposium, a two-day presentation and discussion on innovations in epilepsy, movement disorders and spasticity care. The symposium is under the direction of Jorge A. González-Martínez, MD, PhD, director of the department's Epilepsy and Movement Disorders Program and a world-renown leader in the care and treatment of epilepsy and movement disorders.

Over the last 20 years, the surgical treatment for patients with epilepsy, movement disorders and spasticity have experienced a dramatic evolution, favoring the improvement of clinical results and safety. In this context, the upcoming neuromodulation field—applied to different neurological conditions—has provided additional treatment alternatives and hope for patients with medically intractable conditions. The Frontiers in Neurosurgery and Neuromodultaion symposium, is a focused and practical symposium dedicated to neurologists, general practitioners, mid-level providers, students, surgeons and patients interested in learning and discussing the current state-of-the-art treatment methods, as well as the future of the neuromodulation field.

The symposium will take place at the Fairmont Pittsburgh hotel.

Detailed information on the symposium's agenda, speakers, and registration information will be posted here as it becomes available.
