Neuromodulation Program

Our Neuromodulation Program, which includes specialized physicians and researchers from Weill Cornell Medicine Neurological Surgery and Weill Cornell Pain Medicine, is one of the largest and busiest such practices in New York.

We currently perform:

Deep brain stimulation for treatment of Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, dystonia, and refractory complex regional pain syndrome.

Spinal cord stimulation for treating patients with failed back syndrome, radicular pain syndrome, post-laminectomy pain, peripheral neuropathy and complex regional pain syndrome.

Advanced intrathecal drug delivery (implanted) for relief from cancer and neuropathic pain, and in the treatment of spasticity.

Currently, several research endeavors are underway to develop future neuromodulation procedures and applications. Our experts are hopeful that neuromodulation will continue to help bring relief, hope, and increased function to patients with a variety of debilitating diseases and conditions.
