It is the purpose of this presentation to summarize the current status and results of a continuing investigation of the neurosurgical treatment of several hyperkinetic disorders that have previously been intractable to medical therapy. Although our investigation has dealt principally with the neurosurgical therapy of far-advanced parkinsonism, it has also included cases of such involuntary movement disorders as chorea, athetosis, and dystonia musculorum deformans. The results achieved to date in each of these hyperkinetic disorders will be presented. For the purpose of this report, details of surgical technic will not be emphasized, but, rather, emphasis will be placed upon
