Dr. Sameer Sheth Featured in U.S. News story on OCD treatment

Dr. Sameer Sheth on OCD treatment

Dr. Sameer Sheth is quoted in a terrific new article by US News on the complexity of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD).

Dr. Sheth is one of a small number of neurosurgeons in the country who specializes in the surgical treatment of this sometimes debilitating disease.

“These are patients who are severely disabled,” says Dr. Sheth in the article.

The US News article, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: Serious Business, gives an overview of the treatment options from cognitive behavioural therapy and medication to brain surgery.

According to Dr. Sheth, surgery can provide relief for those patients who do not respond to more conservative approaches, and there are three surgical options:

  1. Cingulotomy — read more about that here.
  2. Gamma Knife radiosurgery — read more about that here.
  3. Deep Brain Stimulation — read more about that here.

Dr. Sameer Sheth directs the Functional and Cognitive Neurophysiology Lab at Columbia University Medical Center/New York Presbyterian Hospital. He is also a member of the Epilepsy and Movement Disorders Centers there.
