This event features Jaimie Henderson, MD, neurosurgeon, Stanford, and Rohit Dhall, MD, movement disorder specialist, The Parkinson’s Institute.

drhenderson Dr. Henderson is an expert in the surgical treatment of movement disorders and chronic pain, and is active in research and development of improved DBS surgical techniques. In 1994, while on the faculty at St. Louis University, he started their Movement Disorders Surgery Program. In 2001 he joined the Neurosurgery staff at the Cleveland Clinic, in Cleveland, Ohio, where he spent 3 years developing innovative surgical techniques for deep brain stimulator placement. In 2004 he joined Stanford’s Movement Disorders Neurosurgery team.

drdhallDr. Dhall recently joined the Parkinson’s Institute and Clinical Center. Prior to joining he was Medical Director of Neuromodulation at the Barrow Neurological Institute where he evaluated PD patients for appropriateness of DBS surgery, supported functional surgeons, and provided post-implantation care. He has conducted numerous studies including evaluation of: DBS devices designed to assess effects of target selection on cognition and gait; “asleep” DBS surgery; internal capsule anatomical variation on the effects on DBS; frequency reduction of DBS stimulation on gait and balance; and the effects of pharmacologic modulation of other subcortical/brainstem nuclei.
