(December 19, 2007 - Insidermedicine) This week In the Spotlight, we feature Dr. Fred Lenz, MD, the director of functional neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins University. Dr. Lenz has revolutionized the understanding of human thalamic organization and has been involved in the introduction of new treatments for movement disorders. His work has revealed that both chronic pain and movement disorders can reorganize the thalamic representation of the body. His studies have also refined techniques used to make deep brain stimulation a viable option for patients with movement disorders like Parkinson’s disease.
We'd like to thank Dr. Lenz for appearing on Insidermedicine's In the Spotlight. If you believe there is someone conducting world class medical research in your area, and would like them to be featured on Insidermedicine's In the Spotlight, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
