Gordon H Baltuch, MD, Co-Chief of the Division of Functional Neurosurgery at Columbia University Irving Medical Center and Professor of Neurosurgery at Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons. Dr Baltuch joins Columbia’s team of experts in diagnosing and treating neurological diseases including Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, and other movement disorders. Dr. Baltuch was one of the first neurosurgeons in the United States to use deep brain stimulation to reduce tremor and other motor symptoms in people with Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders. Dr. Baltuch also became a pioneer in the use of focused ultrasound, a nonsurgical procedure approved in 2016 to treat essential tremor. Since 2017, he has successfully performed hundreds of these procedures and developed Penn’s focused ultrasound program into one of the largest such practices in the country. As a researcher, Dr. Baltuch is at the forefront in the testing of new restorative approaches, including gene therapy for Parkinson’s disease and, more recently, stem cell therapy for stroke.
