Fred Wininger, VMD, MS, DACVIM - Neurology, specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of diseases involving the brain, spine, nerves and muscles. He graduated Summa Cum Laude from the University of Penn-sylvania College of Veterinary Medicine in 2005. He completed his neurology/neurosurgery residency at Wash-ington State University, concurrently earning a Master of Science in Neuroscience in 2009. Dr. Wininger prides himself on his compassionate care and is strongly bonded to his patients and clients. Following residency, he joined the faculty at the University of Missouri as an assistant professor of neurology/neurosurgery and a member of the Comparative Neurology Program. There he was an active researcher for the development of treatments of neurodegenerative disease that affect both young dogs and children. He received international awards for his efforts that contributed to therapies now utilized in both animals and humans. Dr. Wininger developed one of the first hybrid private practice/academic residency training programs with the faculty at MU and trains four residents per year who will go on to practice neurosurgery themselves. The training of future veterinarians remains one of his top priorities. Dr. Wininger has extensive clinical training in all aspects of veterinary neurology/neurosurgery with a neurosurgical certification from the ACVIM. Special interests include advanced MRI neuroimaging techniques and minimally invasive neurosurgical procedures. He has authored several peer reviewed manuscripts and book chapters on these topics. He is the founding and current treas-urer of Veterinary Neurosurgical Society and is the founder of 3D Veterinary Printing LLC. Dr. Wininger’s wife Brandie is a professional chef and in their free time they enjoy exploring all of the wonderful restaurants St. Louis has to offer. At home, they have two dogs (a Dachshund of course), a cat, three chickens and a large saltwater reef tank.
