Getting DBS Therapy


Your best resource for information about DBS Therapy will be a neurologist who specialises in movement disorders like Parkinson’s. The specialist can evaluate you to see if you are a candidate. More about seeing a specialist.

Is It Right for You?

DBS is not right for everyone. Not everyone who receives Medtronic DBS Therapy will receive the same results; some people may experience significant symptom relief from DBS Therapy, and others may experience minimal symptom relief. Only a doctor experienced with DBS can determine if you are a candidate. Generally, the treatment is not for recently diagnosed individuals, or for those who are doing well on medication for Parkinson's.
