Meet the new NANS President

Ashwini Sharan, MD FACS

Dr. Ashwini Sharan is a professor and program director of the departments of neurosurgery and neurology at Thomas Jefferson University. His practice focuses on surgery for epilepsy, neuromodulatory surgery, and spinal neurosurgery.
Dr. Sharan also conducts research and performs deep brain stimulation procedures for Parkinson’s disease and essential tremor. His expertise also includes intrathecal pump implantation for spasticity, spinal cord stimulation for chronic pain disorders, and vagal nerve stimulation for epilepsy. In addition, he leads the surgical epilepsy program at Thomas Jefferson University, where approximately 100 patients per year are treated with surgery and a majority are cured.
He has been actively involved in NANS leadership for the past 8 years and previously served for several years as co-chair of the NANS Annual Meeting. Dr. Sharan describes NANS as "A truly unique society. We have gathered physicians from a diverse multi-specialty group around a therapy. The applications of stimulating the nerve is giving opportunity to thousands of patients who have become unresponsive to pharmacological therapies. In many instances, the results of neuromodulation surpass those of medical therapies and give patients new hope."
