Hearing Noises - UCLA Surgical Team Takes on Superior Semicircular Canal Dehiscence (SSCD)

Join us Tuesday, June 17, at 7:30 am PST

Can you imagine hearing every noise in your body amplified, including your eye movements and heartbeat? 
An estimated 1% of the population suffers from Superior Semicircular Canal Dehiscence (SSCD) , a rare disease caused by a tiny hole in one of the three canals inside the ear. SSCD can trigger vertigo, hearing loss, disequilibrium and other balance and auditory symptoms.

UCLA Head and Neck Surgeon Quinton Gopen, MD, and UCLA Neurosurgeon Isaac Yang, MD, on Twitter and Instagram as they perform a specialized procedure for Superior Semicircular Canal Dehiscence (SSCD) on an actual patient.

Celebrate our 500th Deep Brain Stimulation Surgery to Cease Tremors

Join the conversation on Twitter at @UCLAHealth with hashtag #UCLAORLive

Nader Pouratian, MD, and the deep brain stimulation team at UCLA are celebrating their 500th patient implanted with a brain pacemaker to cease Parkinson's disease and essential tremor. During the procedure, the patient will be woken up and play guitar live while Dr. Nader Pouratian implants a brain pacemaker.

An estimated 10 million Americans have essential tremor and more than one million suffer from Parkinson's disease. For many of our patients at UCLA, deep brain stimulation is "miraculous" in stopping the tremors and thus enabling them to return to normal daily life.
