Pallidotomy

Service:

This surgical procedure destroys a group of cells in the internal globus pallidus, the major area from which information leaves the basal ganglia. This procedure is most effective in relieving dyskinesias and tremor, but also helps some of the other symptoms of advanced Parkinson's. Much more needs to be learned about the effectiveness of all these procedures.
