Biographical Sketch

Andre Machado, MD, Ph.D, is the Director of the Center for Neurological Restoration in the Neurological Institute.  Dr. Machado performs deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery for patients with Parkinson's disease, tremor, dystonia and psychiatric disorders as well as surgical procedures for patients with intractable pain syndromes and spasticity. 

Dr. Machado received his medical degree from the University of Sao Paulo in 1997.  He completed his residency in the same institution in 2003 and obtained his Ph.D. in 2004.  He came to the Cleveland Clinic in 2004, completed his fellowship in Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery in 2006 and has been on the staff of the Cleveland Clinic since then.

Dr. Machado is an Assistant Professor of Surgery at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine of Case Western Reserve University and Associate Staff in the department of Neurosurgery with Joint Appointments in the Department of Neuroscience and in the Department of Biomedical Engineering at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner Research Institute.  Dr. Machado is the program director for education in Stereotactic and Functional Neurosurgery and won the "Teacher of the year award" from the Department of Neurosurgery in 2009.

Dr. Machado leads deep brain stimulation and neuromodulation clinical trials as well as laboratory research.  His research in deep brain stimulation for thalamic pain syndrome was awarded the National Institutes of Health Director's New Innovator's Award.  In addition, he conducts deep brain stimulation research for treatment of refractory depression as well as obsessive compulsive disorder. His laboratory in the Lerner Research Institute is focused in developing new strategies for utilizing neuroprosthetic devices such as DBS to improve post-stroke rehabilitation.  His current NIH funded research is aimed at evaluating the effects of deep cerebellar stimulation on post-stroke perilesional plasticity and recovery of function.

Dr. Machado is the author of several peer reviewed publications and chapters in stereotactic and functional neurosurgery.

Industry Relationships

Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists may collaborate with the pharmaceutical or medical device industries to help develop medical breakthroughs or provide medical expertise or education. Cleveland Clinic strives to make scientific advances that will benefit patient care and support outside relationships that promise public benefit. In order for the discoveries of Cleveland Clinic physicians' and scientists' laboratories and investigations to benefit the public, these discoveries must be commercialized in partnership with industry. As experts in their fields, Cleveland Clinic physicians and scientists are often sought after by industry to consult, provide expertise and education.

To assure professional and commercial integrity in such matters, Cleveland Clinic maintains a program that reviews these collaborations and, when appropriate, puts measures in place to minimize bias that may result from ties to industry. The Cleveland Clinic publicly discloses the names of companies when (i) its physicians/scientists receive $5,000 or more per year (or, in rare cases, equity or stock options) for speaking and consulting, (ii) its physicians/scientists serve as a fiduciary, (iii) its physicians/scientists receive or have the right to receive royalties or (iv) its physicians/ scientists hold any equity interest for the physician's/scientist's role as inventor, discoverer, developer, founder or consultant.* In publicly disclosing this information, the Cleveland Clinic tries to provide information as accurately as possible about its physicians' and scientists' connections with industry.
