The Center for Neuromodulation at The Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center is one of the nation’s leading centers in developing neuromodulation treatments for a wide range of diseases and conditions. Neuromodulation, which involves the use of implantable devices that alter nervous system activity through the use of electrical stimulation, is one of the fastest growing medical specialties.
Our neuromodulation team, which includes specialized physicians and researchers, is among the most experienced in the country. We currently perform deep brain stimulation for treatment of Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, dystonia and obsessive compulsive disorder. We also perform spinal cord stimulation for treating patients with failed back syndrome, radicular pain syndrome, post-laminectomy pain, peripheral neuropathy and complex regional pain syndrome.
Research we’re conducting at Ohio State is being used to develop future neuromodulation procedures and applications. Our experts are hopeful that neuromodulation will continue to help bring relief, hope and increased function to patients with a variety of debilitating diseases and conditions.
