CME Event: Update on the Medical and Surgical Management of Movement Disorders and Epilepsy

Access Activity

Overview / Abstract:

Currently, medical therapies for intractable epilepsy and for
movement disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease are advancing
rapidly (e.g., rapid pace of anti-seizure medication development,
new dopamine agonists & dopamine pumps for PD). Meanwhile,
functional and epilepsy neurosurgery offers among the most
potent therapies within all of medicine. Furthermore, a variety of
new neurosurgical interventions have been developed in recent
years, including laser thermal amygdalo-hippocampotomy for
refractory temporal lobe epilepsy and responsive, closed-loop
neuromodulation for focal, unresectable epileptogenic lesions.
This CME course is designed to provide an overview of recent
advances in the medical and surgical care of patients with
complex, chronic neurologic conditions, focusing on epilepsy
and movement disorders. The goal is to provide caregivers with
the understanding necessary to convey existing and near-term
potential options to patients, and to foster collaborations among
attendees to develop optimal, team-based treatment strategies.
