In this episode, we talk with Patricia Limousin about the early days of DBS in the modern era to the current day and about what the future may hold. Building up on episode #4 with Pierre Pollak, we find out how Patricia experienced programming the first bilateral STN-DBS patient, and what has changed over the last 30 years. Professor Limousin has worked at the UCL Institute of Neurology and the National Hospital for Neurology & Neurosurgery since 1997, where she is currently a Professor of Clinical Neurology and Consultant Neurologist. We follow her journey from a PhD with the topic of subthalamic nucleus DBS in Grenoble/Lyon to her move to London, where she helped build one of the leading DBS centers, worldwide.
