Dr. Daniel Kramer is an assistant professor of neurosurgery at the University of Colorado School of Medicine. Clinically, he specializes in surgical treatments for movement disorders, epilepsy, and facial pain. Specifically, he is focused on resections for epilepsy, laser therapy, responsive neural stimulators, MR-guided focused ultrasound treatments, new applications for deep brain stimulation, and microvascular decompressions. His research interests include the interpretation of neural signals and communication between brain areas, particularly as this communication relates to movement production and somatosensation. His current work includes the development of a brain computer interface program at University of Colorado. His lab will aim to improve understanding of the role of motor and sensory systems in motion, with the goal of finding treatments for movement disorders, including Parkinson’s disease. They will also aim to facilitate the use brain computer interfaces at home to allow patients to have daily assistance from these devices.
Dr. Kramer received his Bachelor of Arts from Northwestern University and his MD from the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine. He completed his internship and residency at the University of Southern California, where he served as Chief Resident in the Neurological Surgery program. He then completed his fellowship in Neurological Surgery at Stanford University.
