Dr. MacNeill’s Research Shows Spinal Cord Stimulation (SCS) May Reduce 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, demonstrating the benefits of spinal cord stimulation (SCS). Dr. MacNeill and Dr. Cheng’s report was the first to reveal the potential for SCS to treat Parkinson’s Disease (PD). This study pioneered new treatment options for PD, and multiple studies have subsequently been released corroborating these findings.
