Functional neurosurgery focuses on modifying or restoring parts of the nervous system. This includes every component of the nervous system from the brain down and may involve movement, pain or other nerve and/or brain functions.

Chiari Malformation and Syrinx

Chiari malformation is a condition in which brain tissue extending into your spinal canal may result in a fluid-filled cyst (syrinx) in the spinal cord.


A neurological disorder caused by abnormal brain activity that results in seizures or episodes of unusual behavior, sensations and sometimes loss of awareness.

Essential Tremor

A nervous system disorder that causes involuntary and rhythmic shaking, most often in the hands.


The condition in which excess cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) builds up within the ventricles of the brain due to a mismatch of CSF production and absorption.

Parkinson’s Disease

This disease involves the degeneration of the dopamine-producing neurons in the brain and may cause shaking, stiffness, or difficulty with walking, balance and coordination.

Primary Dystonia

A neurological movement disorder that results in involuntary muscle contractions and other uncontrollable muscle movements.


Spasticity is the stiffening or tightening of the muscles to the point that they eventually resist stretching and are unable to be controlled.
