Department of Functional Neurosurgery University of Pécs, Hungary is dedicated to the surgical alleviation of movement disorders such as Parkinson?s disease, dystonia, tremor and neuropathic pain syndromes (phantom limb pain, trauma related, failed back surgery syndrome, metabolic, post stroke pain etc.). The service offers deep brain stimulation, spinal cord stimulation, motor cortex-, and peripheral nerve stimulations, or lesional procedures as appropriate.
The aim of course to foreshow participants about anatomical, pathological, eletrophysiological basis of extrapyramidal movement disorders (Parkinson?s disease, tremors etc.) and also chronic neurogenic pain.
Patient selection, criteria of surgery (indications-contraindications), perioperative investigations, different targeting methods, and surgical procedure, programing of neuropacemakers will be discussed. VIDEO demonstration and analysis of different movement disorders available. According to demand students can participate in surgery.
