Dr. Warnke was one of the first neurosurgeons to use interstitial stereotactic radiosurgery for the treatment of gelastic epilepsy and hypothalamic hamartomas and is one of few neurosurgeons in the United States who has experience with dopamine transporter imaging (DAT-SPECT). Dr. Warnke is studying the use of DAT-SPECT to predict response to deep brain stimulation (DBS) for Parkinson’s disease. He is also researching the development of biological and minimally invasive treatments for epilepsy, movement disorders and brain tumors, and he is studying the tumor physiology of medulloblastomas and their relation to drug delivery in pediatric brain tumors.
