Dr. Jamshid Ghajar

Monday, November 22, 1999, 7 PM
Kresge Auditorium, Stanford University
Admission: Free with Stanford ID, $5 general admission

Dr. Jamshid Ghajar is a distinguished New York-based Iranian neurosurgeon who is a tireless proponent of an aggressive approach to treating severe head injury. In 1996 he achieved renown for saving the life of a woman who was savagely beaten in Manhattan's Central Park using innovative medical procedures. His achievements were featured in an article in New Yorker Magazine and were the focus of a PBS NOVA program, called Coma, broadcasted worldwide. He was also interviewed on PBS's Charlie Rose Show, ABC Primetime, and on NPR's Fresh Air with Terry Gross.

He will speak about his innovative techniques and his efforts to establish international guidelines for the treatment of head injury. He will also touch on his recent trip to Iran and the challenges faced in treating head injury there.
