Why You Should Talk to a Boston Scientific Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Therapy Consultant

Boston Scientific DBS Therapy Consultant - Davis Phinney Foundation

Many people who are in the early stages of thinking about or planning for deep brain stimulation (DBS) don’t realize there are therapy consultants they can talk to about the process, the device, and how it all works. So, we were grateful to have the chance to talk to Alaine Keebaugh, PhD, and potential DBS recipient Scott Rider about the value of building a relationship with a therapy consultant, using a Boston Scientific DBS system.

Topics discussed include:

  • Parkinson’s medicine
  • Role of therapy consultant
  • How does a Boston Scientific DBS therapy consultant become involved?
  • How did you meet your Boston Scientific DBS therapy consultant?
  • Different companies offering DBS
  • About the rechargeable devices
  • What are your concerns as a patient?
  • What is the longevity of the device?
  • What symptoms may be reduced with a Boston Scientific DBS?
