About Deep Brain Stimulation
DBS is a neurosurgical procedure to help control irregular body movement. It involves placing thin wires, called electrodes, in specific areas of the brain and then delivering a mild electrical current. The current is carefully monitored and adjusted over time so that it continues to provide effective symptom relief.
Our neurosurgeons know that for many patients, DBS can be the difference between declining and thriving. Deep brain stimulation helps ease symptoms of movement disorders, including shaking, slowed movement and stiffness. After DBS, many patients can recover some of the most routine aspects of daily life, such as feeding themselves, and enjoy hobbies and social activities. Some patients have even been able to reduce their medications enough to ease side effects such as nausea. Our specialists have seen again and again how these results can bring joy and relief to their patients.
