FUNCTIONAL AND STEREOTACTIC NEUROSURGERY; EPILEPSY SURGERY

Michael Kogan, MD; Peter Shin, MD;

 

The functional and epilepsy surgery programs are growing as treatments and indications expand. UNMH has both an adult and pediatric Level IV Epilepsy Monitoring Unit. The department’s interests include deep brain stimulation for parkinsonism, spinal cord stimulation for pain, and vagus nerve stimulation for epilepsy and depression. The Functional MRI service at SRMC generates pre-operative 3-D modeling which can be used real time in intra-operative guidance to optimize outcomes from these procedures. The Nene and Jamie Koch Comprehensive Center for Movement Disorders, currently under construction, will be a $15 million facility dedicated to a multidisciplinary treatment of movement disorders. Laser ablation is also available for treatment of epileptic foci.
