"Christopher Hess"

Christopher W. Hess, MD, an assistant professor of neurology at the University of Florida College of Medicine and he directs the Veterans Administration Parkinson’s Disease Consortium Center at the North Florida/South Georgia VA Medical Center.

Dr. Hess received his medical degree from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York. He went on to complete his neurology residency and serve as chief resident at Columbia University Medical Center.
Dr. Hess completed subspecialty fellowship training in movement disorders at Columbia under Dr. Stanley Fahn with additional training in movement disorders neurophysiology and intraoperative mapping for deep brain stimulation under Seth Pullman.

Dr. Hess has published journal articles and book chapters on a variety of topics, including movement disorders neurophysiology and methods of tremor analysis, neuroimaging in movement disorders, invasive and non-invasive brain stimulation in Parkinson’s disease and substance abuse in movement disorders. His current research interests involve the use of non-invasive neuromodulation in movement disorders and neuroimaging techniques to study network connectivity in Parkinson’s disease.

Dr. Hess is a member of the International Parkinson and Movement Disorders Society, the American Academy of Neurology and the American Medical Association. Dr. Hess is board-certified by the American Board of Neurology and Psychiatry.
