The expert neurosurgeons at Providence provide deep brain stimulation to help lessen the neurological effects of conditions like Parkinson’s disease, MS and essential tremor. Our surgeons are recognized for their clinical expertise and contributions in advancing the field of neurosurgery. Our entire team is here to treat your condition using the best and safest treatment.
Deep brain stimulation does not slow the progression of movement-related diseases, but it can alleviate most of the symptoms to significantly improve your quality of life.
Deep brain stimulation can help lessen the effects of:
- Essential tremors
- Involuntary movements
- Multiple sclerosis
- Parkinson’s disease
People diagnosed with essential tremors or Parkinson's Disease are often sentenced to a life of debilitating tremors – shaking so severe that they can no longer work, or perform routine tasks like holding a spoon or fork to feed themselves.
Fortunately, with the Deep Brain Stimulation procedure performed at Providence Sacred Heart Medical Center, patients can experience a new lease on life.
