Dr. Adam Lipson First in N.J. to Treat Parkinson’s disease with deep brain stimulation; Continues to Be a Leader in His Field of
(Union, New Jersey- July 17, 2018) Adam Lipson, MD, FAANS, of IGEA Brain & Spine, is a leader in providing solutions for those suffering with advanced stage Parkinson’s disease.
The procedure works to reduce tremors and block involuntary movements by sending short, unobtrusive electrical impulses to areas of the brain through implanted electrodes.
Dr. Adam Lipson, a renowned neurosurgeon who specializes in movement disorders and Parkinson’s disease. performs the procedure in New Jersey on a regular basis.
In 2010 Dr.Lipson performed the first ever frameless DBS implant in the state of New Jersey and believes that by adding deep brain stimulation to the practice, he is providing a great opportunity that extends its range of procedures to bring new hope to patients managing Parkinson’s.
“I’m very excited to offer deep brain stimulation to Parkinson’s disease patients that has shown great results in helping to alleviate pain,” Dr. Lipson said.
“I pride myself on researching and providing the best and newest procedures and techniques to our patients.”
Deep brain stimulation involves surgically implanting an electrode that is programmed to deliver charge-balanced, voltage-controlled electric pulses to improve a patients’ mobility.
The painless procedure is recommended for patients who have lived with the disease for more than four years, and when medicine is no longer effective in allowing a patient to better function in normal movement activities.
The doctors at IGEA Brain & Spine are dedicated to establishing relationships with patients through personalized, empathetic medical care and feel strongly that comprehensive patient care extends well beyond expert neurosurgical procedures.
“As a physician I believe it is my responsibility to give my patients a full understanding of the process so that they can feel comfortable, positive and assured that they are in the best possible care,” Dr. Lipson said. “IGEA is proud of its stellar dedication to coordinated, individual care.”
When it comes to conditions of the brain, spine or neurovascular system, patients deserve unwavering attention from qualified physicians who understand that no two diagnoses are alike.
A comprehensive neurosurgical practice, backed by an entirely board-certified team of physicians, IGEA Brain & Spine is committed to using state-of-the-art technologies to serve patients throughout New Jersey and New York.
