ABOUT DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION

A 24-Hour Therapy that Fits Your Lifestyle

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) helps control movement symptoms of Parkinson’s—tremor (shaking), slowed movement (bradykinesia), and stiffness (rigidity). When medications aren’t as effective as they used to be and your symptoms make everyday life a challenge, DBS may help.


WHAT IS DBS?

DBS uses a small, pacemaker-like device, placed under the skin of the chest, to send electronic signals to an area in the brain that controls movement. To give you relief, these signals block some of the brain messages that cause the movement symptoms of Parkinson’s.
