There has been a resurgence in stereotactic surgery for the treatment of Parkinson's disease, tremor, and dystonia, and with it a growing need for up-to-date information about these procedures. In Surgical Treatment of Parkinson's Disease and Other Movement Disorders, a panel of highly experienced neurosurgeons, neurophysiologists, neuropsychologists, and neuroanatomists join forces to create an integrated, cutting-edge survey of all the methodologies necessary for successful surgical treatment. On the surgical side they review a variety of techniques for Parkinson's disease, including thalamotomy, pallidotomy and bilateral pallidotomy, subthalamotomy, pallidal and thalamic deep brain stimulation, and subthalamic deep brain stimulation. Surgical therapy for tremor and dystonia is also covered. On the patient side, the authors systematically examine the key issues involved in patient selection, patient assessment before and after surgery, brain target localization, and postoperative programming of brain stimulators. Comprehensive and authoritative, Surgical Treatment of Parkinson's Disease and Other Movement Disorders integrates the diverse techniques now available in this rapidly growing field to provide a practical guide to effective treatment of patients afflicted with these disorders
