Jonathon J. Parker, MD, PhD
Neurosurgery Resident, Dean's Office Operations - Dean Other
Bio Dr. Parker is currently a PGY6 Neurosurgery Resident at Stanford. He has focused his training and research on minimally invasive treatments for epilepsy and movement disorders in Adults and Children. He has focused his training to develop expertise in open microsurgical resection techniques, laser interstitial thermal therapy (LITT), focused ultrasound (MRgFUS), Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS), Responsive Neurostimulation (RNS), electrocorticography (ECoG), stereo-electro-encephalography (SEEG), and robotic-assisted surgery.
Dr. Parker completed a year long enfolded fellowship in Adult and Pediatric Epilepsy & Functional Surgery with Dr. Gerald Grant and Dr. Casey Halpern. Guided by his surgical mentors, Dr. Parker has utilized state of the art approaches to improve epilepsy surgery by combing SEEG, 3D printing, whole brain tractography, and navigated operative exoscopes to guide safe surgical resections of epileptic foci. Dr. Parker's research revolves around optimizing SEEG techniques for intracranial evaluation of epileptic foci and clinically-relevant brain mapping via understanding the role of white matter in seizure propagation.
