Evan Winograd, MD, is a fellowship-trained, board-eligible neurosurgeon at Advanced Neurosurgery Associates. He’s excited to be part of the Gwinnett community, where he is able to make an impact with his patients. Dr. Winograd became interested in medicine because of puzzles. The intrigue of figuring out how the pieces fit together to create a whole picture made him want to make a difference in people’s lives through neurosurgery and creating a whole picture of their disease and helping them through treatment.
Creating a relationship with his patients and their families is important to Dr. Winograd. It’s his goal to create an open dialogue with his patients so that they can be their own health advocate. In his consultation with his patients he wants to know their life and health goals so they can together create a treatment plan that best fits their needs, non-surgical or surgical.
Dr. Winograd completed his medical degree at Tel Aviv University in Tel Aviv, Israel, followed with his residency in neurosurgery at University at Buffalo, in Buffalo, New York. While he was in residency he participated in eight months of training in surgical neuro-oncology research. He concluded with a fellowship in neurosurgical oncology at University of Colorado Anschutz School of Medicine. During his fellowship, he was able to focus on awake craniotomy and endonasal pituitary tumor resection. He has several peer-reviewed articles published and presented his research at annual neurosurgical meetings.
He has additional training in Gamma Knife radiosurgery, used as an alternative to traditional brain surgery.
