Karen G. Hirsch, MD
Associate Professor of Neurology (Adult Neurology) and, by courtesy, of Neurosurgery
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsDr. Karen G. Hirsch cares for critically ill patients with neurologic disorders in the intensive care unit. Dr. Hirsch's research focuses on using continuous and discrete multi-modal data to develop phenotypes and identify signatures of treatment responsiveness in patients with coma after cardiac arrest. She is the Co-PI of PRECICECAP (PRecision Care In Cardiac ArrEst - ICECAP, NINDS R01 NS119825-01) and works closely with collaborators in data science at Stanford and with industry partners to apply machine learning analyses to the complex multi-modal ICU data. Dr. Hirsch also studies neuro-imaging in post-cardiac arrest coma and traumatic brain injury.
Additional research interests include a broad array of topics and Dr. Hirsch greatly appreciates the importance of team science and collaboration. Along with colleagues in Biomedical Ethics, Dr. Hirsch studies brain death and organ donation with a focus on ethical challenges and prediction models. Along with colleagues in Cardiac Anesthesia and Cardiothoracic Surgery, Dr. Hirsch studies neurologic outcomes in patients on mechanical circulatory support including ECMO.
Dr. Hirsch is broadly interested in improving neurologic outcomes after acute brain injury and identifying early phenotypes to guide precision medicine in neurocritical care, especially in patients with post-cardiac arrest brain injury.
Professor (Clinical) of Neurology and Neurological Sciences, Emeritus
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsThe response and recovery of human visual cortex, oculomotor systems and related cognitive functions after acquired neurological disorders is a main area of interest.
Associate Professor (Research) of Neurology (Adult Neurology)
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsWe study the role of oxygen free radicals in oxidative tissue damage and degeneration. Our research tools include transgenic and knockout mice and tissue culture cells for in vitro gene expression.
Safwan Jaradeh, MD
Professor of Neurology (Adult Neurology) and, by courtesy, of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsClinical interests include autonomic disorders, small fiber neuropathies and the development of effective methods of testing and treating these disorders. Prior work has focused on small fiber painful and autonomic neuropathies; syndromes of orthostatic intolerance and syncope; gastrointestinal motility dysfunction; cyclic vomiting; protacted Gastroesophageal Reflux; non-allergic rhinitis syndromes; and the relationship between the autonomic nervous system and normal or abnormal sleep. Additional areas of interest include the neurology of phonation and swallowing disorders, and peripheral nerve injury and repair.
Clinical Associate Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
Clinical Associate Professor, Pediatrics
BioDr. Susy Jeng is Clinical Associate Professor of Neurology at Stanford Children’s Hospital at Stanford University. Dr. Jeng received her A.B. at Harvard College and M.D. at the University of California, San Diego. She completed her pediatrics residency at University of California, San Francisco and is board-certified in pediatrics. After practicing general pediatrics for two years, she returned to UCSF for neurology residency. Upon completion of her residencies, she joined the faculty at Stanford as a general child neurologist with a special interest in medical education. She is the site director for the Stanford medical student neurology clerkship and the pediatric neurology liaison to the Stanford pediatrics residency program.
Jocelyn Jiao, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
Clinical Assistant Professor, Medicine - Primary Care and Population Health
BioDr. Jiao is a fellowship-trained, board-certified neurologist with the Movement Disorders Center at Stanford Health Care. She is also a clinical assistant professor in the Department of Neurology and Neurological Sciences.
Dr. Jiao has extensive experience providing comprehensive care for patients with different types of movement disorders, including Parkinson’s disease. She is fellowship-trained in both movement disorders and hospice and palliative medicine. Dr. Jiao is developing an interdisciplinary neuropalliative clinic that emphasizes planning for the future and maximizes quality of life for people living with chronic neurological illness.
Dr. Jiao’s research efforts include a pilot study assessing the impact of deep brain stimulation (DBS) as a treatment for Parkinson’s-related motor symptoms upon mood and pain. Specifically, this work focuses on identifying correlations between DBS targets and reductions in medications that address depression, anxiety, and impulsivity symptoms that result from Parkinson’s treatments. Dr. Jiao has also completed a pilot study focused upon narrative medicine interventions for people living with Parkinson’s disease.
Dr. Jiao has published her work in multiple peer-reviewed journals, including Pain Medicine and the Journal of Neurosurgery. Dr. Jiao is a member of the American Academy of Neurology, the International Parkinson and Movement Disorder Society , and the International Neuropalliative Care Society.
Maya Katz, MD
Clinical Associate Professor, Neurology & Neurological Sciences
BioDr. Katz is a board-certified neurologist who specializes in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease and other movement disorders. She is also a clinical associate professor of neurology at Stanford University School of Medicine.
In her clinical practice, she develops a comprehensive, compassionate treatment plan for every patient in her care. She excels at deep brain stimulation, neuromodulation, and other advanced treatment approaches. She also works closely with each patient’s caregivers and family members to help ensure optimal well-being and quality of life for all involved in the management of Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease, Lewy body dementia, progressive supranuclear palsy, and other conditions.
Her research activities include serving as a co-investigator of the Parkinson’s Progression Markers Initiative funded by the Michael J. Fox Foundation. She is a site principal investigator for a National Institutes of Health-funded study of the application of palliative care to Parkinson’s disease. Previously, she was a co-investigator for studies of remote access to care for Parkinson’s disease and patient-centered outcomes in Parkinson’s disease, both funded by the National Parkinson Foundation.
Dr. Katz has earned many honors, including the ”Advancing Parkinson’s Therapies” conference award from the Parkinson’s Foundation and the “Fostering New Directions in Research” award from the Movement Disorders Society. She won scholarships from Weill Cornell Medical College, the Joseph Collins Foundation, and Anna E. Ray Robinson Education Fund.
She has presented her research findings at global meetings such as the International Parkinson and Movement Disorders Society and the International Palliative Care Society. She also has made presentations at national meetings of the American Academy of Neurology as well as regional conferences.
She has authored numerous articles on the topics of outpatient palliative care for Parkinson’s disease, caregiver burden in Parkinson’s disease, virtual visits for Parkinson’s disease, and diagnosis of cervical dystonia. Her work has appeared in journals including Neurology, Annals of Palliative Medicine, Contemporary Clinical Trials, Movement Disorders Clinical Practice, and Neurotherapeutics.
In addition, she is a reviewer for JAMA Neurology, the Journal of Neurological Sciences, Journal of Parkinson’s Disease, the brain imaging and stimulation section of Frontiers in Human Neuroscience, and Parkinsonism and Related
Dr. Katz is a member of the American Academy of Neurology, International Parkinson and Movement Disorders Society, Parkinson’s Foundation, Parkinson’s Study Group, American Academy of Hospice and Palliative Medicine, and American Telemedicine Association. She also is an invited speaker at community support groups for people with Parkinson’s disease.
