Dr. MacNeill’s Case Report Shows Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) Reduces Symptoms of Parkinson’s Disease


In 2010, at the annual meeting of the North American Neuromodulation Society, Charles A. MacNeill, MD released a case report co-authored by Dr. Cheng, a noted neurosurgeon from Brown University. Their report was the first to show the benefits of SCS for a human with Parkinson’s Disease (PD). Multiple studies are now being released corroborating the findings that SCS helps patients with PD.
