Personal profile

Research Interests

Dr. Rosenow is the Director of Functional Neurosurgery in the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine Department of Neurosurgery and at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. He specializes in the treatment of movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, tremor, and dystonia, as well as the surgical treatment of epilepsy and chronic pain. He works as part of a coordinated multidisciplinary team that includes physicians in neurology, neurophysiology, neuropsychology, neuroradiology, physical therapy, speech pathology, and social work. My research revolves around restorative neurosurgery. This includes neurostimulation (deep brain, cortical, transcranial magnetic), brain-machine interface (both cortical chip and EEG-based), and gene therapy methods. Our group currently has active projects investigating cortical-basal ganglia interactions in Parkinson's disease patients with externalized deep brain stimulating electrodes as well as computer modeling of both cortical-basal ganglia interactions and novel paradigms of deep brain stimulation. We are also involved in a project using an animal model of neuropathic facial pain to discern and refine motor cortical stimulation for facial pain. We have an active protocol for transcranial magetic stimulation for recovery for brain injury. Another area of interest is image-guided surgery. We pioneered frameless deep brain stimulation surgery and have several projects investigating new methods of intraoperative localization and navigation.
