He collaborates with numerous companies and industry partners on product development, education, research, and strategy. Dr. Falowski is involved in numerous clinical research studies and novel developments for spinal cord stimulation, pain management, deep brain stimulation, and spinal procedures.
He won the research award at the PAN Philadelphia Neurosurgical Conference in 2009 for his work dealing with DBS in a depression model and its effect on neuroplasticity. His latest publications and specialty interest deals with utilizing intra- operative neuromonitoring for the asleep placement of spinal cord stimulators, as well as developing new technologies and stimulation platforms.
His practice is primarily based on neuromodulation, pain management and its applications, and spinal procedures. This includes Deep Brain Stimulation for Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders, Spinal Cord Stimulation for the treatment of various pain syndromes, peripheral nerve stimulation for headache disorders, and radio- frequency ablation for the treatment of trigeminal neuralgia. Dr. Falowski has an established track record for establishing a nationally recognized functional neurosurgery program that included a Pain Center, Movement Disorder Center, and neuroscience research division.
