Functional Neurosurgery

Many common neurosurgical illnesses involve disorders of the spine or intracranial disorders such as tumors, but epilepsy and movement disorders (essential tremor, Parkinson's disease and others) can also be treated by neurological surgeons.

Even though medical- and pharmacologic-based therapies still represent first-line treatments for functional disorders, greatly improved imaging, microneurosurgical techniques and understanding of the pathophysiology of these disorders have placed neurosurgeons at the forefront in treating these afflictions.


The Center for Neuromodulation at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is one of the nation’s leading centers in developing neuromodulation treatments for a wide range of diseases and conditions.


euromodulation, which involves the use of implantable devices that alter nervous system activity through the use of electrical stimulation, is one of the fastest growing medical specialties.
