In this session, Dr. Michael Park will take participants through the process of implanting a deep brain stimulator (DBS) for the treatment of Parkinson's disease. Dr. Park will explain how the device works, will show how he does the pre-surgical planning for determining where to place the device, the patient prep, and the surgical process of placing the electrode and stimulation unit. Then he will explain how the stimulation parameters are tuned at the patient follow-up visit. Throughout the tutorial, Dr. Park will use video captured during one of his recent surgeries. The tutorial will be interactive with questions from the audience coming at any time. This will be a unique opportunity to learn how DBS devices work, when they are used, how they are implanted and how they are tuned, in the context of a real clinical case.
