Additional comments for Communications about this event

After earning a masters and doctorate in bioengineering, Dr. VanSickle pursued a career in neurosurgery. He earned a medical degree and completed a six-year residency. With the help of a robot he adapted, he can find the exact spot to implant electrodes in the brains of patients with Parkinson's disease - Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) surgery. He brought a new method of DBS in which a patient goes under general anesthesia thus reducing the patient's fear. The surgery sets back symptoms of neurologic disorders by 7-10 years.In October of 2019, he successfully used a new type of scanner during asleep robotic DBS, a pioneering effort at Littleton Adventist Hospital - a first such case in the world.
