If you have been identified as an appropriate candidate for deep brain stimulation (DBS) after being evaluated by our team, we will work with you to schedule your surgery. You will arrive at The Johns Hopkins Hospital one day prior to the surgery and will stop taking your anti-Parkinson's medications from 10 p.m. on the day of admission until after the surgery. This helps us observe the benefit of the placement of the DBS, as well as to minimize drug-induced dyskinesias.
