Two surgeons – one who specializes in deep brain stimulation surgery and another with a focus on minimally invasive spine surgery – have joined Lehigh Valley Fleming Neuroscience Institute.
Greg Davis, MD, comes to LVHN from Albany Medical College in Albany, N.Y., where he served as Fellow, Functional and Stereotactic Neurosurgery. Prior to that, he was a neurosurgery resident at George Washington University Hospital in Washington, D.C. He is a graduate of Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine.
Davis specializes in functional neurosurgery, neuromodulation and deep brain stimulation. All three use electrical stimulation of the brain to achieve desired results. For instance, in deep brain stimulation surgery, electrodes are implanted into certain areas of the brain to help control abnormal areas in the brain. It is used to treat movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease and essential tremor.
With Davis’ arrival, LVHN will have the only deep brain stimulation surgeon in the Lehigh Valley.
