YOUR DBS SUPPORT DBS Therapy for Parkinson’s Disease

FIND ADDITIONAL DBS RESOURCES

We’re here to help you get the information you need to make a confident decision about DBS. Medtronic DBS Support Link® connects you to people who already have DBS, nurses who specialize in it, and other educational resources, including emails, videos, and brochures.


TALK WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS DBS

You can talk one-on-one with someone who already has DBS for Parkinson’s. 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, signup online below, or call us at 877-438-3574.
