Academic Bio

Dr. House specializes in the surgical treatment of Epilepsy, Movement Disorders,Trigeminal Neuralgia, Brain Tumors, and Traumatic Brain Injury.

Paul A. House, MD surgically treats patients who suffer from epilepsy, movement disorders (including tremor, Parkinson’s disease, and dystonia), trigeminal neuralgia and brain tumors. His research interests include improving the “decoding” of movement information from the brain, understanding epileptic activity across several orders of scale, and designing new devices to provide communication with the brain.
