Parkinson’s: New Frontiers

April 12 @ 1:30 am - 2:00 am AEST

Prof. Teo was, and remains, instrumental in the development, dissemination and acceptance of the concept of keyhole minimally invasive techniques in neurosurgery. His innovative approach to neurosurgical and neurological conditions was demonstrated while in the USA when he established and directed both the Arkansas Pediatric Neuro-oncology Clinic (APNOC) and the UAMS Movement Disorder Clinic. Together with his neurological colleague, A/Prof. Ergon Uc, Prof. Teo operated on more than 400 patients with Parkinson’s Disease and published and lectured extensively on pallidotomy and STN/DBS for all forms of movement disorders. After returning to Australia, he established a fellowship program that attracts over 600 applicants yearly and has trained many of the world’s leading figures in neurosurgery at distinguished centres such as the Barrow Neurological Institute and Johns Hopkins, Yale, Duke, Stanford, Vanderbilt and Harvard Universities. He currently has academic appointments in Australia, Singapore, USA, Vietnam, Europe and India. Dr Teo has over 160 publications in peer-reviewed journals and has authored two books on keyhole approaches to brain tumours and is a guest editor for several journals.

Over the last few years, Professor Teo has used his innovative mind to develop and nurture several game-changing companiesOmniscient Neuro-technologies is a data software company that has technology that can map the functionality of the brain through connectomics. Cingulum Health is a clinic dedicated to brain health and fitness using scientific rigour, a holistic approach and transcranial magnetic stimulation. Blacktown Brain and Spine project is his dream of creating a world class centre of excellence attracting patients from around the globe and offering the highest standard of care.
