TJUH - Neurosurgery - Neuro-Implantation

This program at Jefferson treats a large number of patients with a variety of diseases, including chronic pain, epilepsy, movement disorders, spasticity, and spinal cord injury. As one of the pioneering institutional departments in the world to apply novel electrical neurological stimulator and drug delivery systems to patients, Jefferson's neurosurgery program offers residents an unique surgical experience in this rapidly expanding field, treating more patients with these diseases than all other Philadelphia programs combined.
