C155 - Deep Brain Stimulation II: Advanced Management in Movement Disorders and Applications Beyond Movement Disorders

Event Time: Tuesday May 7, 2019 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm
Topic(s): Movement Disorders
Director(s): Leonard Verhagen Metman MD, PhD
Description: Deep brain stimulation therapy is widely used to treat movement disorders such as essential tremor, Parkinson's disease, and dystonia, and indications continue to expand. Similarly, DBS systems continue to evolve offering clinicians and patients new programming options. A basic understanding of the DBS procedure, the different DBS systems, patient selection criteria, and postoperative programming strategies is essential for successful outcomes. Each issue will be discussed, with an emphasis on practical information for clinicians. This course has been divided into two sequential sessions. Those registering for the course are encouraged to participate in both sessions for a comprehensive overview of the topic. Part I focuses on basic DBS principles and programming issues in movement disorders. It will include an overview of new DBS systems, making it of interest to even more experienced programmers. Part II focuses on advanced DBS programming, trouble shooting, directional DBS in movement disorders, and also highlights DBS in non-movement disorder conditions. At the conclusion of this program, attendees are invited to "continue the conversation" as it relates to coding by engaging in small group conversation with the director and faculty. This program complements Deep Brain Stimulation I: Brain Principles and Programming in Movement Disorders, but covers independent topics.
Completion Message: Participants will be able to describe advanced DBS programming strategies, troubleshooting, and novel ways to optimize current delivery, including directional stimulation. They will also be aware of DBS applications in non-movement disorder conditions.  
CME Credits: 2
