Dr. Patel's research interests include the use of deep brain stimulation in the treatment of movement disorders, in particular Parkinson's disease, tremor and dystonia. He is interested in identifying the most appropriate patient candidates for this advanced therapy, as well as determining their optimal targets and programming parameters. For patients with Parkinson's disease, he is investigating the variable effects of stimulation to the subthalamic nucleus and globus pallidus interna on gait and balance. These symptoms are currently challenging to treat with deep brain stimulation, and represent a significant source of debility and quality of life concerns for those living with advanced Parkinson's disease.
