This content was provided by Dr. Sonabend Worthalter "Dr. Sonabend sees patients at Northwestern Medicine and is an Assistant Professor of Neurosurgery at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. His primary clinical focus is the surgical management of tumors of the brain and skull base, including brain metastasis from other cancers, intraventricular tumors, gliomas such as oligodendrogliomas, ependymomas, astrocytomas and glioblastomas, CNS lymphoma, meningiomas, and craniopharyngiomas. He is also interested in trigeminal neuralgia and its surgical management. As a surgeon, he integrates techniques such as laser ablation, radiosurgery, convection-enhanced delivery, stereotaxic navigation, fluorescent microscopy, microsurgery, as well as awake and asleep brain mapping techniques with electrophysiology to achieve safe and effective resections. Dr. Sonabend earned his medical degree at the National Autonomous University of Mexico, where he graduated obtaining the Gabino Barreda Medal for the Highest Academic Achievement. Dr. Sonabend worked as a research associate at The University of Chicago Brain Tumor Laboratory, where he pioneered the use of stem cells for adenoviral gene therapy for glioblastoma. He then trained in neurological surgery at Columbia University Neurological Institute of New York. During this time, Dr. Sonabend continued his research in neuro-oncology and tumor biology. Dr. Sonabend's move to Northwestern University will allow him to take advantage of the infrastructure, and robust clinical research expertise to develop a clinical trial using a personalized approach to TOP2-targeting therapies for gliomas. Dr. Sonabend's research focuses on the use of molecular analysis to personalize treatments for patients with malignant brain tumors and the delivery of these treatments directly into the brain to improve their efficacy while avoiding unnecessary side effects. He is involved in several clinical trials to test novel and promising therapies for patients with brain tumors. In 2015, he was one of only 16 physicians-scientists, and the only neurosurgeon in the U.S., to receive a prestigious NIH Early Independence Award. "
