Neuromodulation is technology that acts directly upon nerves. It is altering or modulating nerve activity by delivering electrical impulses directly to a target area. Neuromodulation can be life changing and enhance the quality of life in individuals who suffer severe chronic neurological conditions such as persistent pain; spinal injury; spasticity; movement disorders; epilepsy; Parkinson’s disease, tremors and stroke.

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) – Parkinson’s disease & Epilepsy
Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) – Failed Back Surgery, MS, Complex Regional Pain Syndrome, Chronic Painful Neuropathy or Plexopathy

Hawaii Center for Neuromodulation at Hawaii Pacific Neuroscience in collaboration other neuromodulations centers in US as well as experts in neurology, neurosurgery, biomedical engineering, neuroradiology, international partners work together to provide cutting edge neuromodulation therapies to patients in Hawaii who could benefit from them and also conduct active research to advance understanding of how neuromodulation can drive “bench to bedside” translational science to benefit patients in Hawaii and worldwide suffering from chronic refractory neurological conditions.
Center for Neuromodulation is directed by Kore Kai Liow, MD, Neurologist and Clinical Professor of Medicine (Neurology), University of Hawaii John Burns School of Medicine who has successfully implanted over 300 patients with neuromodulation devices over the last 25 years and have seen how they positively changed their lives. He works and collaborates with a team of neuroscience specialists including neurologists, pain specialists, neurosurgeons, neurorehabilitation specialists to choose the right treatment plan, which may include medications and counselling, based on individual patient’s needs and medical situation.
Center for Neuromodulation is conducting multidisciplinary clinic at either
