Dr. Albert Fenoy is a board-certified neurosurgeon with training in deep brain stimulation and expertise in surgery for neck and back pain, using minimally invasive techniques as well as complex instrumentation.
An assistant professor of neurosurgery at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) Medical School, Dr. Fenoy received his medical degree at the State University of New York at Stony Brook. He completed his residency in neurosurgery at the University of Iowa and completed a fellowship in functional neurosurgery at the Centre Hospitalier Universitaire de Grenoble, France.
Prior to joining the Mischer Neuroscience Institute and the McGovern Medical School at UTHealth, he was a neurosurgery fellow associate in the Department of Neurosurgery at the University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics. He is a member of Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society, the Congress of Neurological Surgeons and the American Academy of Neurological Surgeons.
Dr. Fenoy has presented research at several national conferences that has subsequently been published in Clinical Neurosurgery, Journal of Neurosurgery, Brain Research, Pediatric Neurosurgery, Hearing Research and Journal of Neurosurgery: Spine. His research has focused on the electrophysiology and clinical manifestations of basal ganglia disease, electrophysiology of the human auditory cortex, as well as craniocervical junction abnormalities.
Fluent in French, Dr. Fenoy treats patients 16 years and older. He views each patient individually and develops a custom treatment plan in conference with the patient and referring physician.
Married with two children, Dr. Fenoy enjoys running, hiking and outdoor sports.

Gregorio Lozano is on the operating table at Memorial Hermann-Texas Medical Center, wide awake though mildly sedated, with two small holes in his skull. Holding his head in place is a framing contraption topped by a semi-circular metal piece that gives Lozano the air of an Aztec king.
Sixty-eight-year-old Jeffrey Day was officially diagnosed with Parkinson’s about seven years ago.
He underwent an operation at Memorial Hermann Mischer Neuroscience Institute, where doctors place electrodes in the brain to fight “misfiring cells” that cause Parkinson’s symptoms, with a higher frequency. This basically stops tremors.
