Our pediatric neurosciences team expanded this fall with the addition of two faculty members.
Kristen Arredondo, MD, joins our Comprehensive Pediatric Epilepsy Center as an assistant professor of neurology at Dell Medical School. Arredondo earned her medical degree from Baylor College of Medicine in Houston. After her preliminary training in pediatrics at Texas Children’s Hospital, Arredondo completed a pediatric neurology residency and a clinical neurophysiology fellowship at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas. Prior to joining our program, Arredondo was on the faculty of The Ohio State University College of Medicine and Nationwide Children’s Hospital in Columbus.
Arredondo is certified in neurology with special qualifications in child neurology as well as in clinical neurophysiology. She oversees the medical, dietary, and surgical treatment of epilepsy in children and has interests in medically refractory epilepsy patients, neurostimulation, and individuals with tuberous sclerosis complex. Arredondo’s research interests include thalamic EEG findings and practice trends in epilepsy presurgical evaluation and surgical management.
Faheem Mahomed, MD, joined our pediatric rehab team in September. After receiving his medical degree from the University of Missouri-Kansas City School of Medicine in 2016, Mahomed completed his physical medicine and rehabilitation residency at the University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio. During his residency, he received the Department of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation’s resident medical school teaching award. Most recently, Mahomed completed a two-year pediatric rehabilitation fellowship at the University of California Davis Health Center and Shriners Hospitals for Children.
Mahomed is certified by the American Board of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation. His academic interests include management of neuropathic pain in children and facilitation of adaptive sports participation.
Welcome, Dr. Arredondo and Dr. Mahomed!
