Functional Neurosurgery

Stereotactic and functional neurosurgery has a long-standing history at the University of Utah. Our highly-skilled neurosurgeons are leading experts in the field and are dedicated to ensure we offer our patients the highest quality of care.  Stereotactic and functional procedures are used to treat complex disorders of the central nervous system.  All patients are carefully evaluated by our interdisciplinary teams of surgical and medical professionals and are then presented with the best surgical or medical options available based on their diagnosis.

For patients with epilepsy a wide-variety of surgical techniques are used to diagnose and potentially cure seizures. Commonly used techniques include the placement of monitoring electrodes, the focused removal of tissue causing seizures and vagus nerve stimulation.

For patients with movement disorders, functional neurosurgery procedures performed include the use of deep brain stimulation (DBS) to profoundly improve the movement capabilities of patients with Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor and dystonia.
