Chronic Pain 

Failed Back Surgery Syndrome

  • Spinal cord stimulation

Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (RS)

  • Spinal cord stimulation
  • Peripheral nerve stimulation

Trigeminal Neuralgia

  • Microvascular decompression
  • Gamma Knife radiosurgery
  • Percutaneous trigeminal balloon compression

Occipital Neuralgia

  • Occipital nerve stimulation
  • Occipital nerve release
  • C2-ganglionectomy

Chiari I malformation

  • Suboccipital decompression

Pseudotumor Cerebri (idiopathic intracranial hypertension – IIH)

  • Ventriculo peritoneal shunt insertion (VP- shunt) 

Dementia

Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus

  • Ventriculo peritoneal shunt insertion (VP shunt)
  • Endoscopic third ventriculostomy (ETV)

Epilepsy (pediatric and adult)

There is no single treatment that is effective for all people who suffer from seizures. Some symptoms are best managed through medication. Others require some type of surgery. The Center for Neurologic Restoration customizes treatment for each patient. Here are some options:

  • Surgical resection: Learn about the evaluation process for this surgery.
  • Vagus nerve stimulation (VNS): Learn about this procedure.
  • Responsive neurostimulation (RNS): Learn about this procedure.
  • Diagnostic procedures to determine the location of the seizure:
    • Subdural electrode placement 
    • Stereo EEG electrode implantation 

Movement Disorders

Essential Tremor

  • Deep brain stimulation (DBS)
  • Gamma Knife thalamotomy
  • MRI-guided focused ultrasound
  • Learn more about essential tremor.

Parkinson’s disease

  • Deep brain stimulation (DBS)

Dystonia

Spasticity

  • Intrathecal baclofen trial and pump implantation 

Neurobehavioral Disorders

  • Obsessive compulsive disorder may be treated by deep brain stimulation (DBS) through an FDA-approved mechanism called a humanitarian device exemption, or HDE.
  • Tourette’s syndrome may be treated with deep brain stimulation (DBS), though this is considered an off-label therapy.
