      Why Does Experience Matter?

      Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

      Dr. Fryer says...

      Dr. Fryer is a specialist in pediatric migraine and sees both children and teens with headache disorders in our comprehensive Columbia Headache Center. In addition, Dr. Fryer specializes in treating pediatric patients with a wide range of general neurologic issues, including seizures, developmental delay, concussion, etc.

      In research, Dr. Fryer has focused on the elucidation of genes involved in neuronal migration, a key early step in CNS development. Dr. Fryer was able to identify a gene, Nisch, which regulates trafficking of receptors to the cell surface of migrating neurons. Mutations in this gene have recently been identified in patients with autistic spectrum disorders.
