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.
Hawaii Center for Neuromodulation at Hawaii Pacific Neuroscience in collaboration with 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, Director and Clinical Professor of Medicine (Neurology),University of Hawaii John Burns School of Medicine, who has served as investigator for TMS (Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) at NINDS, NIH, RNS (Responsive Neurostimulator) at Pivotal phase 2 trial, several VNS (Vagal Nerve Stimulator) trials for the past 25 years. He works with a team of neuroscience specialists including neurologists specializes in epilepsy, stroke and Parkinson’s, neurosurgeons, pain specialists, neurorehabilitation specialists to choose the right treatment plan, which may include medications and counselling, based on individual patient’s needs and medical situation.
