The UCLA Neuromodulation for Movement Disorders and Pain Program provides comprehensive treatment options for patients with Parkinson's Disease, movement disorders, chronic pain conditions and psychiatric disorders.
UCLA is the only hospital in Southern California that offers non-invasive treatment for Essential Tremor. MRgFUS is a technique which uses high intensity focused ultrasound energy waves to heat up a precise target in the brain, creating a permanent lesion.
Nader Pouratian, MD, and the deep brain stimulation team at UCLA celebrated their 500th patient implanted with a brain pacemaker to cease Parkinson's disease and essential tremor.
