Why I Went into Medicine: Gary Steinberg, MD, PhD
Thousands and thousands of times, brain surgeon Gary K. Steinberg has done one of medicine’s most difficult jobs. Why? He fell in love. In this video, Steinberg, chair of Stanford Health Care’s Department of Neurosurgery, director of the Stanford Moyamoya Center, and the founder and do-director of the Stanford Stroke Center, explains his gradual evolution of study from psychiatry to psychobiology to neurology— and finally to cerebrovascular neurosurgery. And he shares the mental strategy that supports his ability to perform this delicate work of blood vessel repair in the brain. “It’s daunting,” he said, “but it’s also creative.”

Why I Went into Medicine: Casey Halpern, MD
Using deep brain stimulation to give his patients a normal life is a daily inspiration for Stanford Health Care neurosurgeon Casey Halpern. In this video, Halpern explains what happened as he first observed deep brain stimulation surgery—and how his interest has evolved since then. “If a small electrode in the brain can have such an incredible effect on a patient’s tremor and Parkinson’s disease,” he said, “couldn’t it do something just as effective in a different part of the brain for a different medical condition?” Now, he uses deep brain stimulations to treat patients with movement disorders, epilepsy, chronic pain and spine disorders. His research goal is to expand the uses of deep brain stimulation to other conditions, including psychiatric disorders like obsessive-compulsive disorder.

Stanford Celebrates 20th Anniversary of CyberKnife Technology
Invented at Stanford, the CyberKnife first revolutionized cancer care by reducing treatment time and treating previously inoperable tumors. Now, its treatment repertoire has expanded beyond cancer. About the CyberKnife: The CyberKnife was debuted at Stanford in 1994. Since then, the CyberKnife has treated well over 5,000 patients at Stanford Health Care, and 100,000 patients worldwide. It is now available at 206 health care centers around the world. The CyberKnife's special quality is that it tracks tumor movement whether from breathing or other patient motion. Its beam delivery arm reacts with minute precision to real-time images of the tumor.No radiation is sent out when the tumor moves out of the beam, protecting healthy tissue that can sometimes be damaged as it might be in traditional wide field beam delivery.
