Surgical Treatment of Movement Disorders

Professor David Barba

The modern management of movement disorders such as Parkinson's Disease and essential tremor includes both medical and surgical therapies. Surgical treatments such as Deep Brain Stimulation therapy utilize non-destructive neuromodulation to treat patients who are resistant to medical therapy. As this lecture will explain, our increasing understanding of the underlying pathogenesis of movement disorders as well as current and possible future surgical treatments offer the promise of significant therapeutic benefit.

Instructor: David Barba is a Clinical Professor of Neurosurgery and Director of the Functional Neurosurgery program at UC San Diego. He specializes in the surgical treatment of epilepsy and has 19 years of experience in the surgical treatment of movement disorders. He is a member of the UCSD Movement Disorders Team.
