    Collapse Overview 
    Collapse overview
    Fernando Goldenberg, MD, is a specialist in critical care medicine with sub-specialization in neurocritical care. He is a member of a multidisciplinary team of experts working in the Neurosciences Intensive Care Unit (Neuro-ICU). This team is dedicated to the diagnosis and management of patients with ischemic (low blood flow) and hemorrhagic (blood vessel rupture) stroke and brain aneurysms. He also specializes in the management of critically ill patients with brain tumors, cerebral edema, status epilepticus, as well as patients with severe Guillain-Barre syndrome and respiratory failure associated with myasthenia gravis.

    Dr. Goldenberg is a contributor to a wide range of research investigations related to the care of critically ill neurological patients including the formal diagnosis of brain death.

    Dr. Goldenberg is involved in teaching and administration of the Neurocritical Care Fellowship training program. He also teaches neurology and neurosurgery residents, critical care medicine and anesthesia/critical care fellows, as well as medical students.

    An active speaker, Dr. Goldenberg has lectured on stroke and brain injury treatment at medical meetings in the United States and South America.
