Lafayette Neurologist Presents in Boston


Lafayette Neurologist Dr. Thomas Forest recently presented a case study at the 2011 American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) National Conference in Boston on the topic of voiding dysfunction in children. Specifically, the study centers on his experience treating multicystic dysplastic kidneys in the bladder walls of children.

Forest is one of six board-certified pediatric urologists in Louisiana, and among only 266 nationwide. While working at Louisiana Urology Center, he has practiced at Lafayette General Medical Center since 2006, and is one of few urologists trained on using the hospital's da Vinci surgical robot. "We are extremely proud when our doctors have the opportunity to bring their advanced medical practices to light at a national level," says David Callecod, Lafayette General President/CEO, FACHE. "Dr. Forest's work embodies the LGMC mission to restore, maintain and improve health."

The AAP is an organization of 60,000 pediatricians committed to the attainment of optimal physical, mental and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents and young adults.
