Dr Andre Lozano is a world leader in Functional Neurosurgery. He is renowned for his pioneering work in the identification and mapping of new brain areas and circuits underlying neurological and psychiatric diseases; and translation of these discoveries into the clinical application of deep brain stimulation for Parkinson’s disease, treatment-resistant depression and Alzheimer’s disease.
Dr Lozano is recognized for his pace-setting creativity and innovation in developing new surgical treatments for patients whose disorders have no adequate alternatives for therapy. He and his team are acknowledged as the pioneers that have mapped out the activity of single neurons in several deep brain structures for the first time in man, including the subthalamic nucleus, pedunculopontine nucleus (PPN) and subcallosal cingulate gyrus. His team is widely recognized for conducting the first ever trials of deep brain stimulation for depression, anorexia and Alzheimer’s disease.
His research has led to new surgical interventions for Parkinson’s disease, dystonia, Huntington’s disease, depression, anorexia, and Alzheimer’s disease.
