Our functional neurosurgery team offer highly specialized treatment for conditions of the nervous system and movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and Epilepsy. Functional neurosurgery involves precise surgical targeting of anatomic structures in order to modulate neurologic function. Our ultimate aim is to improve the symptoms and quality of life of patients suffering from chronic neurologic disorders; this demands minimal risk of inflicting morbidity and mortality.
The technologic advances of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and deep brain stimulation (DBS) are driving the resurgence of functional neurosurgery, making it one of the most rapidly expanding neurosurgical fields. This includes deep brain stimulation, which uses electrodes implanted in the brain to help control and reduce tremors and stiffness. Patients who have had deep brain stimulation will remain under the care of the team for up to a year after the procedure so that their medication can be kept under review.
