YOUR DBS RESOURCES AND SUPPORT DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION FOR ESSENTIAL TREMOR

We’re here to help you get the information you need to make a confident decision about DBS.


CHOOSE HOW YOU WANT TO LEARN ABOUT DBS

Support Link™ connects you to people who already have DBS, nurses who specialize in it, and other educational resources.

Support Link makes it easy to get answers to your questions about deep brain stimulation. You can choose to talk with someone on the phone, watch videos, view a webinar, or simply read a brochure or website about DBS.


ASK A NURSE YOUR QUESTIONS

You can have a free phone consultation with a nurse who specializes in caring for people with DBS. During your 20-minute call, the nurse can answer your questions about Medtronic DBS Therapy for essential tremor. As always, talk to your doctor about your condition and medical care. To schedule your call with a nurse, select the button or call us at 877-438-3574.


TALK WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS DBS

You can talk one-on-one with someone who already has DBS for essential tremor. Ask the questions that only people living with DBS therapy can answer, such as:

  • What’s the DBS surgery like?
  • What does stimulation feel like?
  • Why did you choose DBS therapy?
  • How has your life changed?

The volunteers in this program are not Medtronic employees, and they do not offer medical advice or technical support. You can view profiles and choose the person you want to talk to. To schedule your call with someone living with DBS, select the button or call us at 877-438-3574.
