Noted Neurosurgeon Christopher Duma Joins October MASTERS Audio Club
Dr. Christopher Duma is a neurosurgery specialist and widely recognized industry leader. Interviewed by Winn Claybaugh, Dr. Duma discusses wellness, family, music, giving back, and how he juggles it all with his "day job" as a brain surgeon.
Dr. Duma covers all areas of brain surgery, including the surgical management of brain tumors, Parkinson's disease, and hydrocephalus, and he is skilled in minimally invasive neurosurgery. Because he covers the gamut of open general brain surgery, Gamma Knife, and CyberKnife radiosurgery, he is uniquely qualified to offer an unbiased and very modern opinion on how any brain pathology should be managed. (The Gamma Knife Leading Edge technique allows the neurosurgeon to distinguish accurately between healthy tissue and damaged areas of the brain while administering a targeted dose of radiation from the Gamma Knife Perfexion.)
Dr. Duma also performs brain mapping and employs new technologies designed to halt the spread of malignant gliomas—the type of tumor with which Senator Ted Kennedy was diagnosed. He has 15 years of experience in performing deep brain stimulation (DBS) to control movement disorders such as Parkinson's disease and essential tremor and to improve the day-to-day functions of his patients. DBS involves implanting a medical device that operates like a pacer in the chest, sending electrical pulses to stimulate specific areas of the brain and alleviate the tremors. "DBS does not cure these diseases, but it can offer hope to patients when the shaking becomes severely disabling and affects their quality of life," Dr. Duma explains.
Dr. Duma has the world's first experience of injecting autologous mesenchymal fat-derived mesenchymal stem cells directly into the ventricles of the brain for treatment of neurodegenerative disorders. He is publishing his 4-year experience with this in humans.
Dr. Duma is an ardent supporter of patient education and support. He serves as founder and CEO of the Music Heals Project, a charitable organization whose mission is to provide community outreach, resources, education, and fitness programs for patients of all ages with movement disorders and other neurological diagnoses.
Interviewed by Winn Claybaugh, Dr. Duma shares his insights about wellness, family focus, balancing hard work and hard play, his passion for music, giving back, and how he juggles all of that with his "day job" as a brain surgeon.
