Our Multidisciplinary DBS Team

At OHSU, we take a team approach to deep brain stimulation treatment. This means patients receive care not only from pioneering neurosurgeon Dr. Kim Burchiel, but from our team of specialists at OHSU’s Brain Institute.

The multidisciplinary team specializes in movement disorders and works together to create a treatment plan customized for each patient based on their medical history and needs. Our team is comprised of specialists from:

  • Neurosurgery
  • Neurology
  • Physical therapy
  • Neuropsychology
  • Speech therapy

Our team is committed to partnering with referring providers from any region.
