About Us

Our team at UBC

This web site was initially designed by one of our medical students, Albert Issacs, and has been filled with content provided by Dr. Christopher Honey. It is designed to provide patients with information about the neurosurgical operations available at the Surgical Centre for Movement Disorders.  It also provides information on our Fellowship Training Programme and Research activities.  Patients must review these procedures with their neurosurgeon because the outcome and complications can vary between patients and institutions.

Dr. Honey is Professor of Neurosurgery at the University of British Columbia.  He is the current President of World Neurosurgical Federation for Cranial Nerve Disorder. He was President of the Canadian Neuromodulation Society (2016-2019). He was President of the British Columbia Section of Neurosurgery (2016-2020). He was the President of the Canadian Section of Stereotactic & Functional Neurosurgery for its first seven years. He is on the Board of the World Society of Stereotactic & Functional Neurosurgery and the Canadian Neuromodulation Society and has been on the Board of the American Society of Stereotactic & Functional Neurosurgery.

We began DBS in Vancouver in 1999 at Vancouver General Hospital. The first DBS case at UBC Hospital was performed in 2016 and the first pediatric case at British Columbia Children’s Hospital was performed in 2017.
