Functional and Movement Disorder Program

The UCLA Functional Neurosurgery Program addresses poor function of the central or peripheral nervous system by disconnecting and stimulating nerve pathways. Transplantation of tissue and engineered cells is under study.

Specific conditions addressed include Parkinson's Disease, tremor, dystonias, spasmodic torticollis, spasticity, rigidity related to cerebral palsy and spasticity related to spinal cord injury.

Functional neurosurgical procedures are also applied for treatment of severe intractable chronic pain secondary to nerve tissue compression or damage by trauma, surgery or cancer (i.e. trigeminal neuralgia).
