Dr. Fried is a featured speaker of about two dozen such presentations per year.
Dr. Fried began with sobering statistics: there are 4.5 million head injuries per year in the U.S., and 300/100,000 among children, for whom head injuries are the leading cause of death. According to Dr. Fried, head injury is very commonly seen in his practice among both adults and children, and trauma makes up 20 percent of Advanced Neurosurgery Associates’ treatments.
