He also provides surgical treatments for people with chronic pain. Dr. Mandybur has performed more than 1,000 surgeries (deep brain stimulation and pallidotomy) for movement disorders during his career. He says that the experience of seeing a patient’s tremor disappear during surgery “never gets old.”
