Several movement disorders and adult epilepsy can benefit from neurosurgical treatment approaches.
Neurosurgeons at the UPMC Movement Disorders and Epilepsy Program will evaluate you and develop a personalized treatment plan.
UPMC is a leader in treating movement disorders with deep brain stimulation (DBS).
Deep brain stimulation delivers electrical stimulation to targeted areas in the brain that control movement, blocking the nerve signals that cause abnormal movement.
We offer both standard “awake” and MRI-guided “asleep” deep brain stimulation, depending on your condition.
Neurosurgeons at UPMC are able to help adults with epilepsy lead a normal life and control their seizures through:
We perform a full complement of advanced diagnostic tests to make sure you receive an accurate diagnosis and determine whether surgical intervention is an appropriate treatment.
