Dr. Arno Fried recently presented at The David and Lya Neumann Symposium: Advances in Neurosurgery to a room full of primary care physicians, hospitalists, nurses and physician assistants. Hosted by Saint Barnabas Medical Center, the event was held in Atlantic City on March 24, 2017.
Entitled New Paradigms in Seizure Surgery in Pediatric Population, Dr. Fried’s presentation discussed the latest surgical intervention options for pediatric seizures.
Pediatric seizures are largely associated with epilepsy. In fact, of the approximately 150,000 Americans who develop epilepsy each year, 20,000 to 45,000 of them are children and adolescents.
In his career, Dr. Fried has performed over 500 successful epilepsy surgeries.
