The Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Program uses minimally invasive, non-destructive and reversible techniques to help patients with movement disorders, psychiatric disorders, seizures, and certain types of chronic pain.
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.
(April 20, 2010) Helen Bronte-Stewart discusses human movement and Parkinson's disease, providing details about the neurological activity behind human action.
During the final quarter of the Stanford Mini Med School, some of the most timely and important topics in contemporary medicine and the biosciences are addressed.
Stanford Mini Med School is a series arranged and directed by Stanford's School of Medicine and presented by the Stanford Continuing Studies program.

Dr. Henderson discusses risk factors, symptoms, and treatment options for Parkinson's disease, including deep brain stimulation and new therapies on the horizon.
Clinical trials are research studies that evaluate a new medical approach, device, drug, or other treatment. As a Stanford Health Care patient, you may have access to the latest, advanced clinical trials.
Open trials refer to studies currently accepting participants. Closed trials are not currently enrolling, but may open in the future.
For your convenience, you may check in for all same-day appointments at the Stanford Neuroscience Health Center through a centralized, check-in desk near the front lobby. In addition to all outpatient services, you also can access onsite pre-surgery consultations at the center.
