Neuromodulation is one of the fastest-growing fields in medicine thanks to rapid technological advances

The medical team at the Center for Neuromodulation of The Ohio State University's Wexner Medical Center has the expertise and sophisticated technology to help alleviate symptoms by altering brain or spinal cord functions. Our specialists are nationally recognized for their work in deep brain stimulation.

Researchers have developed implantable devices such as brain pacemakers and microinfusion pumps and intricate surgical techniques for implantation that deliver direct, continuous stimulation with electrical impulses or pharmaceutical agents to targeted areas in the brain, spinal cord or peripheral nerves, neuromodulation techniques aim to restore healthy functioning and improve patients' quality of life.

During preoperative evaluations we identify good candidates for the procedure and use brain scans and brain mapping to pinpoint target areas for stimulation. The most commonly treated condition at the Center for Neuromodulation is Parkinson's disease, which affects at least 630,000 people in the United States. Our experts also perform deep brain stimulation to relieve the symptoms of other diseases, including essential tremor, dystonia, and obsessive compulsive disorder.
