Deep Brain Stimulation

Service:
Surgery

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) may be an effective treatment option for patients with movement disorders; specifically essential tremor, dystonia or Parkinson’s disease, and those whose symptoms are too severe to be controlled with medication.

DBS involves implanting a device similar to a pacemaker, called a neurostimulator, in the upper chest. The neurostimulator is attached by a hair-thin wire to electrodes threaded into the precise area of the brain causing the motor issues.
