Aug 18, 2014
Fred Moore, M.D. a professor of surgery at UF Health and his colleagues have been awarded a $12 million, five-year grant from the National Institutes of Health to create the Sepsis and Critical Illness Research Center.
Since 2002, UF Health physicians Michael S. Okun, M.D., and Kelly D. Foote, M.D., have been using a technique called deep brain stimulation to treat patients stricken with movement-limiting conditions. This is the story of one of these patients, and how Okun, Foote and their team are correcting the brain’s circuitry through surgery... and a little electricity.
