While you’re considering DBS Therapy, you may want to talk with someone who receives it now. That's what the Ambassador Program is all about.
DBS Therapy volunteers are not medical experts or Medtronic employees. They're people who are willing to talk with you about their experiences.
You may want to ask questions like:
Go online to sign up for a time that is convenient for you. You will be able to view profiles of the ambassadors and choose the one you would like to talk with.
You can also sign up by calling (877) 438-3574.
Ambassadors cannot offer medical advice or technical support. The volunteer's remarks do not replace conversations with your doctor about the therapy or whether it may be right for you.
Medtronic does not monitor for control, and cannot be responsible for a volunteer's statements. Volunteers are instructed not to disclose your personal information, but we cannot guarantee this will not happen. Therefore, please do not share your personal information with the volunteer unless you wish to do so. Volunteers' comments relate to their particular experience only. As with any treatment, individual results will vary.
