Definition of Goldring, Sidney

Goldring, Sidney: Polish-born American neurosurgeon who pioneered the surgical treatment of epilepsy. Beginning in the 1970s, Dr. Goldring developed a technique that allows the brain to be mapped, enabling the procedure to be used with children with intractable epilepsy. After a stint at the University of Pittsburgh, Goldring in 19966 joined the faculty at Washington University in St. Louis where he became the head of neurological surgery and co-chair of the newly created Department of Neurology and Neurological Surgery in 1974. Dr. Goldring died in 2004 at age 81 of Alzheimer's disease.
