Neuromodulation and Function: Optimizing Outcomes: Time to Pay Attention to the Pre- and Post-Operative Period

Though the objective of neuromodulation is often symptomatic improvement (e.g., analgesic benefit, reduction of tremors and spasticity) the outcome that really matters in the long-run is the restoration of functional ability. This goal has not yet received the attention that it deserves either in research or in clinical practice. However, recent advances in measuring and treating disability and strategies to reduce it provide us with an opportunity to reach for the “Holy Grail” of improving function in patients with pain, paresis or spasticity or any combination of these syndromes. This session will offer an opportunity for attendees to learn about some of the important advances in these areas.
