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. Dr. Fenoy has performed over 500 DBS implantation procedures and thousands of spine procedures.
An Associate Professor of Neurosurgery at McGovern Medical School at UTHealth, 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, 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 and international conferences that has subsequently been published in journals such as Journal of Neurosurgery, Neuromodulation, Brain Research, Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery, Molecular Psychiatry and Journal of Affective Disorders. His research has focused on the electrophysiology of basal ganglia disease, molecular and electrophysiologic manifestations of treatment resistant depression, and as well as the use of tractography and diffusion imaging modalities to improve surgical outcomes. Current research is defined in more detail on his laboratory webpage: https://med.uth.edu/neurosurgery/laboratory-of-albert-fenoy-m-d/

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.
