Experts in Treating Functional Brain Disorders

The Brigham and Women's Hospital Functional Neurosurgery Center takes a multidisciplinary approach to patient care. Our team includes dedicated neurosurgeons, neurologists, psychiatrists, neuropsychiatrists, social workers, physician assistants, and nurse specialists, all of whom have focused expertise in diagnosing and treating functional brain disorders.

As a patient here, you can expect to benefit from the latest treatment options available today, such as:

  • MRI guided focused ultrasound, which we use to treat essential tremor, harnesses ultrasonic energy to target tissue deep in the body without incisions or radiation.
  • Deep brain stimulation is a surgical procedure to treat certain movement disorders and psychiatric disorders.
  • Epilepsy and seizure surgery may be appropriate for epilepsy patients who have seizures that cannot be controlled with medication.
  • The ROSA™ robotic surgical assistant helps our team to perform minimally invasive surgery for epilepsy and other neurologic conditions more safely, quickly and effectively.
