Columbia Neurosurgeons, Dr. Guy McKhann and Dr. Sameer Sheth spoke, earlier this month, in Washington, D.C., at the 2014 Biennial Meeting of the American Society for Stereotactic and Functional (S&F) Neurosurgery.
“S&F Neurosurgery is the field of neurosurgery that deals with disorders of brain function, including Parkinson’s disease, epilepsy, and many others,” says Dr. Sheth. “The procedures used in this field often require precise (stereotactic) targeting of specific brain regions. By applying a variety of techniques such as electrical stimulation to these targeted regions, we can improve brain function.”
The three-day conference brought together neurosurgeons from across the country to discuss the latest research and newest patient treatment methods. They focused on surgical strategies for the treatment of movement disorders, chronic pain, epilepsy, psychiatric disorders, and Parkinson’s disease. They also discussed new applications of deep brain stimulation.
Dr. Sheth and Dr. McKhann shared their expertise on this wide array of clinical disorders. Dr. Sheth spoke on the complex topic, Medial to Lateral Transfer of Feedback Learning Signals in Human Prefrontal Cortex. Dr. McKhann gave a talk in his area of expertise titled Anatomy and Surgical Approaches for Extratemporal Epilepsy.
