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.
