Guest: David S. Sabsevitz, PhD, ABPP, Clinical Neuropsychologist, Associate Professor of Neurology, Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin Some types of brain surgery require the patient to be conscious during part of the procedure, so the surgeons can quiz the patient and make sure they’re not cutting into healthy parts of the brain that control speech or cognition. Neurology professor David Sabsevitz from Froedtert and the Medical College of Wisconsin has created an app with a team of students at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee to make a surgeon’s interaction with the patient on the operating table more precise and effective.
