Dr. Sameer Sheth was invited last month to speak at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine as part of a special continuing medical education (CME) course in neurosurgery.

The course took place on July 25, 2014 at the Johns Hopkins Tilghman Auditorium in Baltimore, Maryland, and it coincided with the first Meeting of the Migratory Functional Neurosurgery Society (MFNS).

“The MFNS is a group of functional neurosurgeons in the North Eastern United States,” says Dr. Sheth. “We plan to hold annual CME events such as this one for the ongoing education of health care providers and the general public about the latest developments in functional and psychiatric neurosurgery, epilepsy, and other developing neurosurgical technologies.”

At the July meeting, Dr. Sheth gave a talk titled Psychiatric Neurosurgery: Current Practice and Future Applications, in which he explained the physical circuitry of psychiatric disease in the brain. He spoke about the use of Deep Brain Stimulation for conditions such as obsessive compulsive disorder and depression. He also talked about emerging treatments for conditions such as PTSD, anorexia, and for memory enhancement.

The course was also designed to, “present challenges the neurosurgeon faces working within a multidisciplinary environment and offers possible solutions to common management problems faced in the treatment of epilepsy, movement disorders, and chronic pain. Additionally, a discussion will be held concerning the challenges new indications for neuromodulation techniques under study offer. —
