Dr. Dean Hertzler to Be Featured at the International Neurology Congress in Punta Cana

Punta Cana, RD.- The XXX International Congress of Neurology and Neurosurgery will take place in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, from October 26 to 29. The Dominican Society of Neurology and Neurosurgery has the honor of extending a cordial invitation to Dr. Dean Hertzler, Pediatric Neurosurgeon at the Joe DiMaggio Hospital in South Florida, to participate as an international speaker in this prestigious meeting of specialists.

This year, the conference will focus on the theme of “Neurosciences: Knowledge, Experience and Technology at the Service of Humanity,” in honor of the prominent neuroscientist, Dr. José Joaquín Puello Herrera, who represents the essence of this central theme.

As tradition dictates, the main objective of this congress is to promote the exchange, updating, discussion, and dissemination of the latest advances in medical science, with a multidisciplinary approach in the field of neurology and neurosurgery.

Dr. Dean Hertzler will address the topic “Neurosurgical management of pediatric vascular problems.” Pediatric vascular diseases of the brain, although rare, present extremely complex management challenges. Arteriovenous malformations, aneurysms in the pediatric population, as well as pediatric traumatic brain injuries and their surgical and non-surgical approaches will be discussed. Brain injuries resulting from head trauma are a common cause of morbidity and mortality in the pediatric population. A traumatic brain injury occurs from a blow or other traumatic injury to the head. The degree of damage can depend on several factors, including the nature of the injury and the force of the impact. Common events that cause a traumatic brain injury are falls, vehicle-related collisions, violence, and sports injuries. Timely surgical intervention is essential in many of these cases, as is medical management of these injuries.

And last but not least, we will discuss Moyamoya disease, a rare blood vessel disorder in which the carotid artery of the skull becomes blocked or narrowed. The carotid artery is a major artery that carries blood to the brain. When it is blocked, blood flow to the brain is reduced. Small blood vessels then develop at the base of the brain in an attempt to supply blood to the brain. The condition can cause a mini-stroke, known as a transient ischemic attack or cerebrovascular accident.

«Improving the quality of life of our patients is the driving force that drives us to continue innovating, growing, and learning as professionals. I sincerely thank you for the invitation and I am delighted to be able to be in the Dominican Republic and share knowledge with my colleagues.», said Dr. Hertzler.

The congress promises to be an unparalleled platform not only for the dissemination of knowledge but also to strengthen collaboration between Dominican and international professionals in the field of Pediatric Neurology and Neurosurgery.

The Dominican media is cordially invited to cover this relevant event and to discuss in depth with this distinguished specialist about the challenges and advances in Pediatric Neurosurgery.
