Op.Dr. Ali ZırhDr. Ali ZIRH invests all of his time, labor, and energy to the treatment of movement disorders, assessment of candidate patients for deep brain stimulation surgery, preparing them for operation, and postoperatively programming their device. Unlike his colleagues who operates similar intervention, movement disorder surgery and deep brain stimulation treatment is the only professional practices of Dr. Zırh.

Dr. Ali Zırh, trained in and practicing the diagnosis, treatment, and operations of movement disorders since 1988, got a training in Toronto Western Hospital, Division of Neurosurgery in 1995, worked solely regarding this issue at Johns Hopkins Hospital, Division of Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery in 1996, and attended countless courses and training meetings abroad about these operations and programming this device.

With almost all of the brain surgeries he has operated since 1994 being movement disorder surgery, Dr. Ali Zırh has been operating in Turkey since 1997. In 1997, Dr. Zırh carried out an operation with groundbreaking microelectrode and recording system at single cell level first time in our country after several other center in USA, and he still uses this method in every operation.

In these operations where the patient is awake, the location of the cells in the brain, causing the disorder can be identified with a margin of error less than 80 microns by means of the microelectrode recording and stimulation technique, and this technique significantly increases the chance of success of the operation and minimizes the complication risk.

Op.Dr. Ali ZırhDr. Ali Zırh, due to this technology and his experience with it, received the international "Elekta" award granted every four years to a brain surgeon working in the field of functional neurosurgery, with his study titled "Human thalamic nucleus mediating taste and multiple other sensations related to ingestive behavior" in Johns Hopkins University.

Dr. Ali Zırh is a member of many international associations and foundations; he attends international scientific meetings related to his field around the world at least 4-5 times a year, and ensures that his patients benefit from the advancements as soon as possible by sharing his experiences with his colleagues who are also experts in their subjects, and following the latest scientific data and technological developments and advancements.

With his clinical and surgical experience of 26 years in his field of specialization, Functional Brain Surgery, over 1000 successful interventions on Parkinson and other movement disorders, over 400 DBS surgery, Dr. Ali Zırh is the first name to come to minds in our country about movement disorder surgeries, and he enabled the institution where these interventions are executed to be established as an International
