The UCLA Neuromodulation for Movement Disorders and Pain Program provides comprehensive treatment options for patients with movement disorders, chronic pain conditions and psychiatric disorders. Our experience regularly treating such a wide range of patients has allowed us to offer the most specialized, advanced neurosurgery care in Los Angeles.
We provide surgical treatments, but that doesn't mean we encourage all of our patients to undergo surgery. We tailor our program to meet the needs of every patient. Delivering personalized care means we consider each patient's condition, medical background and unique circumstances to make sure all treatment options are explored.
Our expert neurosurgeons work in consultation with a world-renowned team of neurologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, anesthesiologists, and pain management specialists to ensure:
All of our patients see both a neurosurgeon and a neurologist. If we determine you are not a candidate for surgery, we will work with you to find the best treatment course to improve your quality of life.

The types of brain surgery we perform are complex procedures that require extreme precision. Our neurosurgeons use the most advanced surgical technology and imaging techniques available to deliver the most safe, accurate and effective care possible.
UCLA Health is the only hospital in Southern California that offers an incisionless treatment — MR guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS) — for essential tremor.
Our work at the UCLA Neuromodulation for Movement Disorders and Pain Program goes beyond treating patients. Our research faculty is always pioneering new ways to treat movement disorders, chronic pain, and other neurological disorders. Not only are we researching new treatment options, we are also working to make our advanced surgical treatments, like deep brain stimulation, available to even more people.
We have the most experienced neurosurgery team in southern California. We are using that expertise to treat today's patients with the most cutting-edge options available and to make sure those options keep getting better for the patients of tomorrow.
