Receiving Deep Brain Stimulation Therapy
Finding a way to manage your symptoms can be a major step toward living your best life if you have a movement disorder. If your doctor prescribes deep brain stimulation (DBS) for you, you will have surgery to implant a DBS device. Talk to your doctor for more information on what to do before and after your procedure.
Receiving an implanted device
You will undergo surgery to have your DBS system implanted by a specially trained neurosurgeon. Before your procedure, you will go through a number of evaluations and receive pre-surgery instructions.
