The Center for Neuromodulation is one of the most experienced programs in the nation, delivering comprehensive care related to the brain. The goal of the Center is to provide treatment for debilitating neurological disorders to help improve our patients’ quality of life.

At Mount Sinai, our physicians specialize in deep brain stimulation (DBS), which is a life-changing procedure that can greatly reduce motor symptoms that accompany Parkinson's disease or other conditions. This procedure can improve patients' abilities to perform daily activities—from golfing and cooking, to performing basic self-care. As a member of the Congress of Neurological Surgeons and the American Association of Neurological Surgeons, Brian H. Kopell, MD, Program Director for the Center for Neuromodulation, has performed deep brain stimulation (DBS) since 2003 and has trained many other physicians on how to perform the procedure. Dr. Kopell is also a member of the North American Neuromodulation Society and American Society for Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery.

In addition to DBS, our Center offers many other treatment options to help patients recover from neurological disorders. Our physicians will work directly with patients to develop the best personalized treatment plan based on their individual needs.
