Miller, Jonathan, MD

Research Statement:

I have a broad background in functional neurosurgery, with specific training and expertise in stereotaxy, epilepsy surgery, physiology, and neuromodulation. My clinical and research interests include movement disorders, epilepsy surgery, and development of novel treatments for a variety of disorders using neuromodulation.
