Deep Brain Stimulation

Deep brain stimulation is a surgical treatment option for patients suffering from Parkinson's disease and tremors.

About the Procedure

Deep brain stimulation involves the implantation of a device that acts like a pacemaker for the brain, sending mild electrical signals to specific parts of the brain.  The signals reorganize the brain's electrical impulses, resulting in improved symptoms for many neurological conditions.

Although deep brain stimulation is not a cure for Parkinson's disease and does not slow down its progression, it can dramatically reduce symptoms of Parkinson's disease and improve the quality of life for many patients.
