The Deep Brain Stimulation Center

The Johns Hopkins Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Center is focused on helping appropriate patients with movement disorders, including essential tremor, dystonia or dyskinesia, and Parkinson’s disease. DBS is a FDA-approved neurosurgical procedure that involves surgically implanting electrodes into the brain to alleviate the symptoms caused by movement disorders.

The "gold standard" for mapping the location for placement of the deep brain stimulator, microelectrode recording (MER), was pioneered by members of the team at Johns Hopkins. Our team continues to be at the forefront of brain imagery advances, key to the success of DBS treatment.
