Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)
Not everyone with obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) responds well to medication or cognitive-behavioral therapy. Reclaim® DBS Therapy for OCD may relieve some of the symptoms of chronic, severe, treatment-resistant OCD.
Reclaim DBS uses a small, pacemaker-like device, placed under the skin of the chest, to send electronic signals to an area in the brain linked to OCD and may help reduce some of the symptoms of OCD.
Neurostimulators are typically implanted near the collarbone. They generate electrical pulses and deliver them through extensions and leads to targeted areas of the brain.
Like other brain surgeries, Reclaim DBS Therapy for OCD carries potential risks and side effects. However, the treatment itself is non-destructive (does not destroy brain tissue), reversible or removable, and adjustable.
We’ve provided answers to some of the most common questions and concerns about Reclaim DBS Therapy for OCD.
