All are invited to join us for a very special virtual support group meeting on Wednesday, 3/3/21 from 5-7 p.m. Pacific time.
PHILIP STARR, M.D., Professor of Neurological Surgery and Director of Functional Neurosurgery at UC San Francisco will be our guest presenter.
He will be discussing: BRAIN SENSING AND ADAPTIVE DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION: POTENTIAL APPLICATION FOR DYSTONIA.
Dr. Starr is the Dolores Cakebread Professor of Neurological Surgery, and Director of Functional Neurosurgery, at the University of California, San Francisco. In 1998 he launched a clinical and research program in deep
brain stimulation, one of the first such programs in the USA. Dr. Starr and UCSF neurologist Dr. Jill Ostrem are the directors of a multidisciplinary
clinic for neuromodulation in movement disorders, in both adults and children. Dr. Starr, along with colleagues Paul Larson and Alastair Martin, developed a novel technique for implanting deep brain stimulators using a skull-mounted aiming device, within a high field MRI scanner. He is one of
the most experienced DBS surgeons in the world. He is a member of the
UCSF Graduate Program in Neuroscience, and directs an NIH-funded laboratory focusing on understanding the mechanism of DBS at a circuit level, and on the use of implantable neural interfaces for long term brain recording and “adaptive” (feedback-controlled) DBS. He received his MD
and PhD from Harvard Medical School, did his neurosurgical residency at Brigham and Womens’ Hospital, and did a fellowship in movement disorders surgery at Emory University.

Daniel was a son, brother, animal lover, artist, animator, poet, rapper, musician and extraordinary soul who was filled with extraordinary faith while conquering enormous challenges after being diagnosed with Spasmodic Dysphonia at 19 years old. His story is a story of triumph, victory, courage and understanding. Daniel left many life lessons and through his experience on earth he will continue to touch lives inspiring us all to be more aware and to build more awareness of what brought him home. Daniel is a warrior and his inspiration that has been collected by his family will be used to bring hope and to change the world!
“We don’t yet see things clearly. We are squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing Him directly just as He knows us!”
— 1 Corinthians 13:12
We Love You Always Dan!
