The NF Surgery Seminar in New York City, NY

New York City | NY

The NF Surgery Seminar is a half-day educational seminar for patients with neurofibromatosis (NF) and for the medical professionals who treat them. Surgery is still the mainstay of treatment for most patients who require intervention. Although this is true of both Type 1 and Type 2 NF, the majority of the discussions will apply to NF1 patients. The conference will be primarily focused on the surgical treatments available. Details of current options will be discussed along with preoperative and postoperative considerations, candidacy for surgery, risks, and anticipated results.

There are several unique additions to the NF Surgery Seminar this year, including a special presentation on the treatment of central nervous system tumors (brain and spine), presented by Dr. Moise Danielpour from the Department of Neurosurgery at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

In addition, we are excited to have Dr. Hubert Weinberg from Mount Sinai Hospital in New York discuss his take on the treatment of NF tumors. As a special feature, we will be holding a Q&A session with Drs. Panossian and Weinberg. This is a unique opportunity for your questions to be answered regarding surgery for the treatment of NF.

In addition, we will be arranging individual appointments with Dr. Panossian for a brief consultation regarding your surgical options.

The NF Surgery Conference is a unique opportunity to educate patients and medical professionals on the available treatments and timing required for optimal results. Dr. Andre Panossian is board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon with a background in neurofibromatosis, peripheral nerve surgery, facial paralysis, and pediatric plastic surgery. He has been featured on Good Morning America, The Doctors, The Los Angeles Times and KTLA 5 News Los Angeles. As mentioned, he is joined this year by Dr. Hubert Weinberg, a world-renowned plastic surgeon with expertise in the treatment of cutaneous NF.
