The Yale Functional Neurosurgery program encompasses advanced surgical treatment of movement disorders, spasticity, epilepsy, neuropsychiatric disorders and intractable pain. Our mission is to provide each patient with individualized, state of the art care in a unique combination of compassion and world-class technical therapy.

Deep Brain Stimulation

Deep Brain Stimulation is an advanced neuromodulatory therapy that is utilized to restore function in patients with many neurological disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease, Essential and other forms of Tremor, Dystonia and patients with Neuropsychiatric Diseases. The Yale Neuromodulatory Center, led by Dr. Jason Gerrard, MD PhD, is the premier DBS center in Connecticut and one of the most active DBS centers in the NorthEast.

Referrals

Many patients are directed to Yale by their neurosurgeons because their problem is unusual or extremely complicated. Patients may also refer themselves. Patients are seen quickly usually within two weeks of calling the department. All patients referred to Yale benefit from the multi-disciplinary team approach that is an essential feature of our practice. Our surgeons maintain a close working relationship with many area neurosurgeons and welcome referrals. Care is taken to ensure the referring physician is kept current on diagnostic findings and treatment recommendations.
