Advances and Limitations of Endoscopic Pituitary Surgery
Presented by Dr. Paul Gardner
Endosopic endonasal pituitary surgery is rapidly becoming the standard. This presentation features data and statistics from one of the largest and first centers to develop this technique in the US and will provide information on the advantages and limitations of endoscopy.
Paul A. Gardner, MD, Associate Professor, Department of Neurological Surgery, University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, and Co-Director, Center for Cranial Base Surgery, University of Pittsburgh Medical Center.
Dr. Gardner joined the faculty of the Department of Neurological Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine in 2008 after completing his residency and fellowship training at the University of Pittsburgh. He completed his undergraduate studies at Florida State University, majoring in biochemistry, and received his medical degree from the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine.
Dr. Gardner completed a two-year fellowship in endoscopic endonasal pituitary and endoscopic and open skull base surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. His research has focused on evaluating patient outcomes following these surgeries and more recently on molecular phenotyping of rare tumors. He is recognized internationally as a leader in the field of endoscopic endonasal surgery, a minimally invasive surgical approach to the skull base. His other surgical interests include pituitary tumors, open cranial base surgery, vascular surgery, minimally invasive surgery and neuro-oncology.
Dr. Gardner is a member of the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, Congress of Neurological Surgeons, and the North American Skull Base Society. He has published numerous peer-reviewed articles, which can be reviewed through the National Library of Medicine's publication database, and lectures frequently at local, national, and international scientific meetings.https://www4.gotomeeting.com/register/322667423
