Spasticity – using selective dorsal rhizotomy, intrathecal drug delivery systems


Parkinson’s  disease – deep brain stimulation – we are one of the largest implanting centres in the UK, a major participant in the PD Surg trial and provide a comprehensive assessment service.


Dystonia – deep brain stimulation service, primarily implanting the globus pallidus for this indication, and with links to Alder Hey to support the development of a service for children, and where this service linked with spastic dystonias.


Microvascular decompression is undertaken for hemifacial spasm – The Walton  Centre has one of the largest UK experiences of this technique.
