Cindy McElfresh is the DBS Program coordinator at the Muhammad Ali Parkinson Center. As the program coordinator, she works closely with the team of DBS experts at Barrow to offer a concierge-type service for patients interested in DBS surgery. She assists people throughout the process of having both awake and asleep DBS surgery—including scheduling appointments, facilitating neurosurgery referrals, and making appointments after surgery.
Before joining the Department of Neurology at Barrow, Cindy was the care facilitator and office manager for Dr. Terry Fife for nine years. In 2010, she helped to establish the Normal Pressure Hydrocephalus Program at Barrow before becoming the DBS program coordinator in 2012.
