Implantable neurostimulators may provide relief from conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and chronic pain.
Neuromodulation is a technique that uses implanted devices and other means to modify the abnormal nervous system activity found in several neurological disorders. First introduced more than half a century ago, it is now a well-established technology that has changed the lives of hundreds of thousands of people.
NYU Langone’s Center for Neuromodulation is one of the first centers in the country to provide a full spectrum of this type of therapy for patients with conditions that include:
Our techniques include deep brain stimulation, spinal cord stimulation, occipital nerve stimulation, peripheral neurostimulation, intrathecal pump implantation, as well as lesioning techniques such as radiofrequency rhizotomy, glycerol rhizotomy, and Gamma Knife® radiosurgery.
Our neurosurgeons are experts in neuromodulation and radiosurgery.View All Doctors
