Advanced DBS Technology for a Better Therapy Today

Investing in innovation for tomorrow

Movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor and dystonia take a devastating emotional and economic toll on patients and their families. As the symptoms of these progressive diseases become harder to manage, patients are looking for ways to take back control over their lives.


At St. Jude Medical, we can help you achieve symptom control for your patients through clinically proven deep brain stimulation (DBS) technologies that help improve outcomes, reduce medication and provide a better patient experience.1,2 At the same time, we are investing in tomorrow’s DBS therapies by partnering with physicians like you to advance clinical research that will drive innovation, improve efficacy and ultimately transform the treatment of movement disorders.
