The Latest Advancements

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is a highly effective and reasonably safe treatment for Parkinson’s; however, it’s also frequently misunderstood. The success stories about how people are sometimes living symptom and medication-free as a result of getting DBS understandably lead many to want to get the treatment as soon as possible. Others think it sounds scary and shy away from it. During this webinar, Dr. Joohi Jimenez-Shahed broke down the what, why, how, and more of DBS so that you have the information you need to determine if your path may lead you to this treatment. She also talked about the current advancements in DBS and answered your questions.
