Dr. Dhall emphasizes that DBS is not an effective treatment for all patients. He says previously a patient could wait up to year to complete the evaluation process. Now, the wait time is four to six weeks. Barrow is a leader in the use of DBS to treat movement disorders. Neurosurgeons and neurologists at Barrow were involved in early clinical trials of the therapy and thus have deep experience that is hard to find in the emerging field.

The clinic is held on Thursdays and four Barrow neurologists manage the multidisciplinary assessments of patients. Before patients see the neurologists, they are provided comprehensive education about the treatment by fulltime educators.

"One of the most important aspects of the clinic is to manage the expectations of patients," says Margaret Anne Coles , program manager at the Ali center. "Many of these patients have never received basic information about Parkinson's and so we provide a lot of support and information, not only about DBS, but about the disease in general."

Dr. Dhall explains that the Barrow doctors immediately establish communication with the physicians who have referred their patients to the Ali center. "We focus on keeping the patient's referring doctors in the loop at all times, so that the patient has another medical resource during their recovery."

Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix, Arizona is an internationally renowned medical center that offers care for people from throughout the world with brain and spine diseases, disorders and injuries. U.S. News & World Report routinely lists St. Joseph's as one of the top hospitals in the nation for neurological and neuros
