Article

Martino 01-web.jpgThe September Med School Café lecture will feature Dr. Anthony Martino, chair of neurosurgery at the University of South Alabama College of Medicine and a neurosurgeon with USA Physicians Group.

His lecture, titled “Surgical Management of Movement Disorders – Deep Brain Stimulation,” will take place Sept. 18, 2014, at the USA Faculty Club on USA’s main campus. Lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m., and the presentation begins at noon.

Patients with Parkinson's disease, essential tremor and dystonia are initially evaluated and treated medically by a neurologist. Those patients who have failed medical management of movement disorders are candidates for deep brain stimulation. During the lecture, Dr. Martino will discuss the surgical role in the management of movement disorders and the new program at USA.

The Med School Café lecture and lunch are provided free of charge, but reservations are required. For more information or to make reservations, call Kim Partridge at (251) 460-7770 or e-mail kepartridge@health.southalabama.edu.

Med School Café is a free community lecture series sponsored by the USA Physicians Group. Each month, faculty from the USA College of Medicine share their expertise on a specific medical condition, providing insight on the latest treatment available.
