Helping you understand the treatments is essential, and our doctors take time to go over each step of the procedure(s) with you, using educational materials and speaking in plain language.
You will gain clear insights on what DBS or another procedure may be able to do for you, as well as the time commitment, side effects and risks involved. This way, you and your doctor can work as partners in deciding the best course of action to address your condition.
Your treatment plan carefully balances the risk of surgical procedures, so you do not undergo unnecessary treatment. Other advanced therapies such as levodopa infusion for Parkinson's disease or ablation procedures for tremor may be available if DBS is not the best choice for you.
If brain surgery is part of your treatment plan, your surgeons have access to robotic stereotactic assistance for added precision during cranial and spine procedures. We offer both awake, stereotactic surgery with microelectrode recording and MRI-guided deep brain stimulation (DBS), so you and your doctor can determine the better option for you.
