Center for Neuromodulation
The Center for Neuromodulation at The Mount Sinai Hospital uses cutting-edge technology to restore function or to prevent further functional declines for patients who suffer from debilitating neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, essential and other tremors, trigeminal neuralgia and chronic pain. We also treat refractory psychiatric disorders such as major depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder and Tourette's disorder. Led by Brian H. Kopell, MD, Director of the Center for Neuromodulation, he along with his team, perform minimally invasive procedures such as deep brain stimulation (DBS), cortical stimulation, spinal cord/peripheral nerve stimulation and vagus nerve stimulation to treat neurological and movement disorders to ultimately improve patients’ quality of life. Our physicians are committed to developing and rapidly adopting new technologies as they become available for functional brain disorders, and to refining current surgical techniques to make implantation surgeries safer and more effective.
