A/Prof Wesley Thevathasan MBBS (Melb), FRACP, DPhil.Oxf

I am a clinical and academic neurologist specialising in Movement Disorders, with expertise in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor and dystonia with deep brain stimulation (DBS) and botulinum toxin (‘Botox’).

 

After clinical training in Melbourne, London and Oxford, I completed a PhD at Oxford University where I helped develop a new form of DBS for Parkinson’s disease.

 

Together with Neurosurgeon Kristian Bulluss, I now run a busy DBS practice, implanting adults and children across public and private hospitals across Melbourne.
