The 7th Emirates International Neurosurgical Conference took place in Dubai, UAE, from December 12–14, 2019. The program included two focused ultrasound presentations by faculty from the University of Palermo in Sicily, Italy, providing two-year follow-up data on patients with essential tremor or Parkinson’s disease who underwent focused ultrasound treatment.
