Deep brain stimulation programming (DBS) continues to grow as an effective therapy for a wide range of neurological and psychiatric disorders, helping patients reach optimal control of their disorder. With the technique finding so much success, the next question is how to make the complexities of post-operative programming cost-effective, especially when traditional medications and treatments can no longer do the job.

The second edition of Deep Brain Stimulation Programming is fully revised and up-to-date with the latest technologies and focuses on post-operative programing, which no other text does. This book provides programmers with a foundation of the brain as an electrical device, focusing on the mechanisms by which neurons respond to electrical stimulation, how to control the stimulation and the regional anatomy, and the many variations that influence a patient’s response to DBS. Dr. Montgomery explores new techniques of programming; including those based on stimulation frequency, closed-loop DBS, and the roles of oscillators in DBS; and new technological advances that make pre-existing theories of pathophysiology obsolete.

Key Features of the Second Edition Include
· Highlights post-operative deep brain stimulation;
· Includes the most recent discoveries in deep brain stimulation programming;
· Highly illustrated with figures for absorption of key programming and techniques;
· Provides an appendix of additional resources available through the Greenville Neuromodulation Center.

Editorial Reviews

Review

“This work is a comprehensive treatise of many of the theoretical and practical aspects of the application of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). It spans the fundamental principles of electrical stimulation, electrophysiology and neuroanatomical considerations and outlines an approach to programming DBS at the most commonly utilized targets for Parkinson’s disease. The book will be of value to practitioners who treat patients with DBS providing important key background knowledge and a practical path towards tackling the challenges of choosing optimal stimulation parameters for these patients.”
Andres M. Lozano, MD, PhD, FRCSC, FRSC, FCAHS, Dan Family Professor and Chairman in Neurosurgery, University of Toronto, Toronto, Ontario, Canada
“As we become a bionic generation there is a large knowledge gap in programming deep brain stimulation devices. Dr. Montgomery’s book addresses the principles of electrophysiology and the details of the pertinent brain regional anatomy. Dr. Montgomery helps the reader to identify and to utilize critical information to guide effective and efficient DBS programming. This is a must read, especially for new generation of health care professionals involved in the care of DBS patients.” —Michael S. Okun, MD, Adelaide Lackner Professor and Chairman of Neurology, University of Florida, Gainesville, FL

About the Author

Dr. Montgomery is a Movement Disorders Neurologist with a special interest in Parkinson’s disease. He has conducted research in motor neurophysiology, particularly the role of the basal ganglia-thalamic-cortical system and the pathophysiology of Parkinson’s disease for over 40 years. For the last 20 years, he has focused on deep brain stimulation in its clinical use and its underlying physiological mechanisms.
