Board Certified in Neurology by the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine, Charlotte Animal Referral and Emergency, North Carolina, USA
Fred Wininger, originally from New Jersey, graduated from the University of Pennsylvania College of Veterinary Medicine. After completing a small animal rotating internship at the University of Georgia he finished his neurology/neurosurgery residency at Washington State University. There he developed a love for neuroimaging and the development of a novel neuronavigation device. Joining the faculty at the University of Missouri, he applied these interests in the development of therapies for both animals and children with a neurodegenerative disease known as Battens disease (neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis) and was awarded the young investigator award by the BDRSA for his work. He moved to St. Louis where he practiced for several years and developed the first hybrid private practice/academic neurology residency programme which continues on today.
More recently, he moved to Charlotte Animal Referral and Emergency in North Carolina. In addition to his clinical and teaching responsibilities, Dr Wininger is the owner and operator of 3D veterinary printing LLC. He creates models and customised surgical tools to aid veterinary surgeons and neurosurgeons around the world. He is the founding treasurer of the Veterinary Neurosurgical Society, an active member of the American College of Veterinary Internal Medicine and adjunct professor for the University of Missouri. When not in practice, Fred enjoys scuba diving, endurance sports and exploring new places through their food.
