Event Overview
Welcome message:

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is a proven effective treatment for Parkinson’s disease and dystonia. So far, about 150,000 patients worldwide have been treated with DBS for disabling movement disorders. It is part of the movement disorders neurologist education and knowledge to know at least the basis of this therapy. General neurologists will also be increasingly confronted with the management of these surgical patients, who suffer from chronic neurological conditions, thus requiring lifelong care.


This advanced course is intended for neurologists, neurosurgeons, and nurse practitioners who are already involved in the care of DBS patients. The course will focus on standards of care in the preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative patient management, a comparison of programming options in different DBS devices, advanced programming options including visualized programming tools, and troubleshooting for failed DBS surgery and various therapy related adverse effects.


It will be celebratory to hold this course in Grenoble, where the first DBS patient was treated 30 years ago.


Recommended Audience

This course is intended for movement disorder specialists, functional neurosurgeons, nurse practitioners, and trainees who are already involved in the selection, intra- or postoperative management of patients with movement disorders (tremor, dystonia, Parkinson’s disease, etc.) treated by deep brain stimulation surgery and want to strengthen their knowledge in the field.


Learning Objectives

Provide an in depth overview of the selection process of candidates for deep brain stimulation in various subtypes of Parkinson’s disease, dystonia and tremor

Outline the efficacy and associated risks for DBS in various subtypes of Parkinson’s disease, dystonia and tremor

List the different electrical parameters that can be adjusted for DBS and outline their biological effect including advanced programming options such as interleaving, multiple independent current control, current steering, etc.

Describe the strategies for adjustment of medication and DBS settings, especially for Parkinson’s disease, and discuss troubleshooting strategies for dysarthria, balance problems, gait problems, neuropsychiatric problems

Describe the strategies for analyzing the causes of “failed DBS surgery” and solutions
