​A researcher who helped pioneer the new helmet-like device creates major brain surgery breakthroughs that control tremor

Dr. Andres Lozano has been fixing people’s brains for about 25 years. And while he’s one of the best neurosurgeons in the world, working on someone’s brain always comes with risks, even for him. However, a recent game-changing breakthrough is dramatically reducing complications to the point where patients will be able to visit the hospital in the morning for non-invasive brain surgery and then go home that same day.

In some ways, the breakthrough isn’t much of a breakthrough at all. Decades ago, researchers realized that ultrasound technology could be used
