About Stereotactic Academy

Welcome to this e-learning resource for stereotactic functional neurosurgery and DBS, with focus on visual anatomical targeting.

The aim of this website is to cover every detail of DBS that is of importance from a clinical perspective, including the most fundamental basics. The site is therefore suitable for young colleagues who are starting their training within the field of stereotactic functional neurosurgery and DBS. Hopefully, some of the lectures will also be of value to more experienced colleagues, and to nonneurosurgeons with an interest in DBS.

Browse through all 125 lectures here. Take them in free order, or as a part of a course carefully packaged together with other relevant material including downloadable operation plans.

Before entering the website, please look at the website presentation and study guide.

We recommend using Google Chrome for browsing the website and viewing the lectures.

“This is unbelievably excellent internet lecture site. AMAZINGLY well organized!”
“I frequently enjoy your lectures to remind before surgery. I am still use MER in STN surgery, which is now consistent and MRI guided surgery in GPi, which is very accurate and precise.”
“Fantastic website training material! It really accelerated and fine-tuned my learning. Honestly, without the website my DBS learning would have been grossly inadequate.”
“The learning resource is a real tour de force – truly amazing. It reflects both a lot of work and a deep understanding of the field. It is really a great resource, and I can see it being of great benefit to all functional neurosurgeons and ultimately patients.”
