This course, which will take place May 8-15, 2017, will explore DBS surgical techniques for optimal lead placement, including:

• Image-based navigation

• Microelectrode recording and stimulation

• DBS lead test stimulation


 From understanding the challenges to identifying the optimal target, the course covers principles of electricity, electronics, neuroelectrophysiology, intraoperative clinical assessment and regional anatomy.  Cases illustrate the application of practical approaches and principles to DBS targeting.

 All participants will receive a complimentary copy of Dr. Erwin B. Montgomery Jr.’s newest book Intraoperative Neurophysiological Monitoring for Deep Brain Stimulation: Principles, Practice and Cases.

Tuition scholarships are available for graduate students, resident, and fellows, as well as for professionals who have completed their program of study within the last two years.

A session of the course is also being planned for October 16-23, 2017.
