Together with our valued patients and their families, we provide outstanding management and seek to develop better treatments for movement disorders. We will continue our research to identify the earliest changes in the brain that result in involuntary movements, define the genetic and/or environmental contributions, and test new therapies to improve the lives of those with movement disorders.

The Center for Neuromodulation at The Mount Sinai Hospital uses cutting-edge technology to restore function or to prevent further functional declines for patients who suffer from debilitating neurological conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, essential and other tremors, trigeminal neuralgia and chronic pain. We also treat refractory psychiatric disorders such as major depression, obsessive-compulsive disorder and Tourette's disorder. Led by Dr. Brian H. Kopell, MD and Dr. Susan Bressman, MD, Co-Directors of the Movement Disorder Institute, along with their team, the center performs minimally invasive procedures such as deep brain stimulation (DBS), cortical stimulation, spinal cord/peripheral nerve stimulation and vagus nerve stimulation to treat neurological and movement disorders to ultimately improve patients’ quality of life. Our physicians are committed to developing and rapidly adopting new technologies as they become available for functional brain disorders and refining current surgical techniques to make implantation surgeries safer and more effective.
