Rohit Dhall, MD

Dr. Dhall, formerly Medical Director of Neuromodulation at the Barrow Neurological Institute where he evaluated PD patients for appropriateness of DBS surgery, supported functional surgeons, and provided post-implantation care. Under his leadership, numerous trials and protocols were initiated including the evaluation of DBS devices designed to assess effects of target selection on cognition and gait, the evaluation of “asleep” DBS surgery, the evaluation of internal capsule anatomical variation on the effects on DBS, the evaluation of frequency reduction of DBS stimulation on gait and balance, and the effects of pharmacologic modulation of other subcortical/brainstem nuclei.
