Dr. Sameer Sheth, Neurosurgeon from our Epilepsy and Movement Disorders Centers, is part of a collaborative effort between the Departments of Neurosurgery, Psychiatry, and Neurology to launch a new clinical service in psychiatric neurosurgery.
“Our multi-disciplinary team will initially focus on patients with severe, intractable obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD),” says Dr. Sheth. “Appropriate patients will be considered for surgical treatment, either with deep brain stimulation (DBS) or stereotactic ablative techniques. These surgical procedures provide significant relief to patients who have exhausted conventional treatment options, including medical and behavioral therapy. We hope to expand our clinical offerings to other psychiatric conditions in the future.”
Dr. Sheth will be talking about Neurosurgery for OCD later this month as part of a Blog Talk Radio Series called, Novel Treatments & Developments for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). The series of talks, sponsored by New York State Psychiatric Institute (NYSPI) and Columbia University Medical Center, will focus on diagnosis, new treatments, and resources for adults and children with OCD. The series began on October 1, 2013 and will be held every Tuesday & Thursday at 3:00 (EST). Dr. Sheth’s talk will be on October 29, 2013.
