Port Chester Nursing and Rehabilitation Centre, in Port Chester, NY, recently sponsored a free lecture on an advanced treatment of Parkinson's Disease and other movement disorders presented by P. Charles Garell, MD, director of functional neurosurgery and associate professor of neurosurgery and neurology at New York Medical College and Putnam Hospital Center. Dr. Garell is one of only four neurosurgeons in New York to perform deep brain stimulation and Medtronic ITB Therapy for parkinsonism, spinal cord ...

The second patient, a Wisconsin man who underwent surgery last month, also was able to move the cursor and do some preliminary spelling, said Charles Garell, director of functional neurosurgery at UW and chief of neurosurgery at the VA Hospital in Madison.
"Just through trial and error he was able to figure out a way to manipulate it," Garell said.
Garell and Williams said they plan to do several more of the implants in the coming months.
"They are what is called 'locked in,' " Garell said.

In a nearly six-hour procedure during which the patient was conscious and speaking, neurosurgeon P. Charles Garell, M.D., placed an electrode into a small region of the brain that processes and relays information before they go to the muscles.In future procedures, Garell will place a controller device under the skin near the collarbone.
"Surgical treatments for Parkinson's have a long history," says Garell, who is also assistant professor of neurosurgery at UW Medical School."But deep brain stimulation has the powerful advantage of being reversible.Brain cells are not destroyed in the procedure; they are stimulated at various rates depending on the patient's symptoms."
Garell, who studied the deep brain stimulation procedure in France with one of the world's leaders in functional neurosurgery, has treated three UW patients through this approach.The first patient, who was treated for essential tremor, had outstanding results; her tremors completely disappeared.The second patient, who suffered from dystonia (a movement disorder involving involuntary muscle contractions), had surgery only recently and his outcome is not yet known as results typically require several months to show.
Garell is hopeful that the Parkinson's patient will enjoy a significant reduction in her tremors and require less medication.Results of DBS studies in Parkinson's patients around the world have shown very promising results in a high percentage of patients.
"This approach is still relatively new, and the profession is carefully assessing who the best candidates for the surgery are," he notes."But we are all encouraged that many patients will now have an option that is reversible and which they can largely control on their own."
Garell joined the UW Medical School faculty in June.Following medical school, he was awarded a fellowship from the American Association of Neurological Surgeons for a year of study in neurosurgery in Grenoble, France.

Charles Garell, a University of Wisconsin neurosurgeon, first tried motor cortex stimulation for facial pain three years ago, but the patient's pain did not subside and the temporary electrodes were removed.
In May, he cut open Radtke's skull for a second try.
During the five-hour surgery, Garell implanted a temporary array of 64 electrodes over her motor cortex.
"We tested them (the electrodes) one after another over 10 days," said Garell.
Eventually Garell found two separate spots about an inch apart where 1.5 volts of electrical stimulation resulted in pain relief.
For that reason, Radtke probably will have to take anti-seizure medications for the rest of her life, Garell said.
