Controlling Abnormal Movements
Our neurologists can evaluate you to determine if you might be a candidate for deep brain stimulation (DBS). DBS is a surgical procedure performed by a neurosurgeon to implant electrodes in specific areas of your brain. These electrodes produce an electrical impulse to help control abnormal movements. DBS may be useful in treating Parkinson’s disease symptoms including tremors, rigidity, stiffness and slowed movements. It may also be beneficial to treat tremors associated with essential tremor disorder. Follow-up management of deep brain stimulation implants, including initial mapping, interrogation and neurostimulator adjustments, are performed in our office.
