Hooman Azmi, MD, FAANS
Dr. Azmi is the Director of the Division of Functional and Restorative Neurosurgery at Hackensack University Medical Center. His goal has been to develop a program that delivers a very comprehensive approach to the care of patients with Parkinson's disease. From promoting engagement in health and wellness, to offering the most current medication therapies, to making available surgical options such as Deep Brain Stimulation and beyond, the program strives to ensure the best quality of life possible for each and every patient.
Recognizing the particular vulnerability of patients with Parkinson’s disease, Dr. Azmi has spent the last decade helping to develop innovative hospital wide protocols and programs to improve the care of patients with Parkinson’s disease who have been admitted to the hospital. He leads a team at HUMC whose efforts have culminated in HUMC becoming the first hospital in the nation to receive disease specific certification in Parkinson’s disease from the Joint Commission for accreditation of Hospitals in June of 2018.
Dr. Azmi has authored and co-authored several articles in scientific journals and has been an invited speaker nationally and internationally. His co-authored book entitled “Parkinson’s Disease for the Hospitalist” was released in 2018.
