Our Doctors

Care and Treatment


A trusted source for neurosurgical procedures. Our team has performed more than 600 DBS procedures since 1999. Jaimie Henderson, MD, and Helen Bronte-Stewart, MD, are world-renowned experts in image-guided surgery for functional neurosurgical procedures. They are currently researching new or improved treatments for Parkinson's disease, pain, psychiatric disorders, and epilepsy.

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) procedures are done using leading-edge techniques developed by Stanford researchers, including a frameless approach, which increases your comfort during surgery. Our multispecialty, team-based approach to DBS lead placement uses precise targeting for stimulation and identifies structures to avoid. This technique maximizes your outcome after surgery.
