Dr. Darlene A. Lobel is a Neurosurgeon and Neuroscientist whose passion is to help you make quantum shifts in your health, business, and relationships by using innovative tools in brain science, so you can achieve your potential and fulfill your destiny. During her decade of active neurosurgical practice, she primarily focused on helping patients with essential tremor (ET), Parkinson’s Disease, and chronic pain to find relief from their symptoms through surgical and non-surgical methods. Dr. Lobel is considered an authority in these areas because of her high level of clinical expertise and vast research experience. She authored a book Stop Spilling Your Soup: The Complete Essential Tremor Solution, which provides detailed information describing over 50 treatments, from holistic to medical to surgical, to find relief from tremors due to ET. She has served as the Director of Medical Research for the Diann Shaddox Foundation for Essential Tremor since July 2019.
Dr. Lobel earned her undergraduate degree from Duke University, completed medical school and neurosurgery residency at the Medical College of Georgia, clinical and research fellowships at UCLA, Emory, Mayo Clinic, and the Atomic Energy Commission in Grenoble, France. At the time of her neurosurgery training, she was one of only 200 female neurosurgeons in the world. She achieved board certification and practiced as a neurosurgeon for 10 years, and she has conducted research in how to use neuroscience to heal your body and to maximize the function of the brain for the last 20 years.
From 2013-2017, Dr. Lobel held an appointment as an Associate Professor of Neurosurgery with a joint appointment in Biomedical Engineering at Cleveland Clinic. In partnership with the Congress of Neurological Surgeons, she developed national and international courses to train residents in surgical techniques, and trained dozens of professors how to teach trainees skills quicker and more effectively than had ever been done before.
