The neurosurgical treatment of psychiatric disorders is entering a new era, and Dr. Sameer Sheth is on the cutting-edge (so to speak). He is a neurosurgeon and a neuroscientist with a doctorate in neurophysiology, and a specialization in psychiatric conditions. All this made him an easy choice to consult for a recent Huffington Post article on the subject.
Dr. Sheth contributed to a story on deep brain stimulation (DBS) and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) written by Dr. Carolyn Rodriguez. The article, “Do You Think You Are Out of Options for Treating Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder?,” was published this October here. Dr. Rodriguez included a note of thanks to Dr. Sheth for his contribution. Read the full article here.
In addition to specializing in the neurosurgical treatment of certain psychiatric disorders, Dr. Sheth specializes in the treatment of patients with movement disorders, epilepsy, brain tumors, trigeminal neuralgia, brain trauma, and hydrocephalus.
He is also the director and founder of the Functional and Cognitive Neurophysiology laboratory, which focuses on the study of human decision-making, behavior, and cognitive processes.
