Dr. Viehoever is an Assistant Professor in the Divisions of Child Neurology and Surgical Movement Disorders at UCSF. She sees patients at the UCSF Pediatric Brain Center at Benioff Children's Hospital. She also sees pediatric referrals for Deep Brain Stimulation as part of the Surgical Movement Disorders Program at the Mt. Zion Campus.
Dr. Viehoever's research focuses on improving the understanding and treatment of pediatric movement disorders with a special focus on improving the use of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) for pediatric primary and secondary dystonia, including Cerebral Palsy. She uses advanced MRI and optical imaging to improve our understanding of how DBS improves brain function in both adult and pediatric patients. She is also an expert in rare disease research and collaborates on several natural history studies and clinical trials for rare diseases including Wolfram Syndrome, Panthothene Kinase Associated Neurodegeneration (a form of Neuronal Degeneration with Brain Iron Accumulation), AADC deficiency, and Niemann Pick C.
