What You Will Learn

Dr. David VanSickle, MD, PhD, FAANS, a Denver neurosurgeon and medical director of the Denver DBS Center, will discuss the state of deep brain stimulation today in this one-hour online forum, followed by a Q&A with participants. Dr. VanSickle, a national expert in Robotic-Guided Asleep DBS, will discuss:

  • Surgical techniques that have improved lead placement accuracy, reducing the need for revision surgery while also reducing risk of infection
  • New technology that allows remote programming from a patient’s home, eliminating the need for multiple visits to Denver and opening access to DBS to rural areas
  • The FDA’s latest rulings support DBS for patients with Parkinson’s earlier in the disease process
  • The risk-benefit equation for essential tremor has greatly improved, making DBS the safe and choice treatment for this condition

About Dr. David VanSickle, MD, PHD, FAANS

Littleton neurosurgeon and a national leader in robotic-guided Asleep DBS for patients with Parkinson's, essential tremor, and other movement disorders.

Dr. VanSickle helps patients with Parkinson’s and other movement disorders gain years of active, fulfilling life through DBS. As an experienced neurosurgeon, Dr. VanSickle saw the reluctance of patients to undergo DBS, which is traditionally performed while the patient is awake. Understanding his patients’ fears, he set out to help develop a technique that allows patients to remain asleep during the procedure. Adding robotic-guidance, Dr. VanSickle now performs Asleep DBS at Littleton Adventist Hospital with results that far outperform national averages, resulting in superior lead placement and minimal complications.

Dr. VanSickle publishes research on his neurological surgery techniques, trains surgeons world wide in asleep DBS, and uses his PhD in Bioengineering to patent medical technology to ensure technological advancements can benefit patients in community hospital settings.
