Meet Our Team

At the Center for Neuromodulation we have an interdisciplinary team dedicated to choosing the right treatment for you. We partner and communicate with all your doctors and create a team to meet your individual needs, as we know not all patients are alike. We also collaborate with your current doctor.

We represent a collaborative effort among several Mount Sinai service areas:

  • Neurosurgery, which provides treatments such as deep brain stimulation and neuroaugmentative and ablative procedures
  • Movement disorders, which treats conditions including Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, and dystonia
  • Epilepsy, which focuses on conditions such as refractory seizures
  • Psychiatry, which treats obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD), major depression, and Tourette syndrome
  • Rehabilitation and pain management, which focuses on conditions such as neuropathy; pain following thoracotomies, mastectomies, spine surgery, and joint replacement; pelvic pain, phantom limb, complex regional pain syndrome, and cancer-related pain
