Unmatched expertise. We are world leaders in DBS care and research. In 1991, Dr. Kim Burchiel was the first surgeon in the U.S. to use DBS to treat a Parkinson’s patient. We pioneered asleep DBS in 2011. We have won global recognition for our innovations in DBS research and care.
“Asleep” DBS. OHSU has the most experienced team in the Northwest to offer asleep DBS. The surgery is safer, faster and more precise – and patients avoid the anxiety of being awake.
National recognition. The OHSU Brain Institute is ranked among the best hospitals in the nation for neurology and neurosurgery by U.S. News and World Report. The Parkinson’s Foundation has named the OHSU Parkinson Center & Movement Disorders Program a center of excellence in Parkinson's care.
Excellent results. Our DBS outcomes are life-changing for patients. Studies have shown OHSU's DBS surgeries are safe, with rare complications. Patients report remarkable changes in their quality of life.
