The patient manual covers your DBS system and treatment. You will receive a copy after your implant procedure.

Please direct all medical, medication, and therapy questions to your doctor’s office. Your doctor has access to your medical records and history and can best diagnose any change in symptoms.
Ask your doctor how to reach the on-call doctor for any medical concerns that come up after hours or on weekends.
Our DBS Helpline is here to answer your questions about your implanted system or treatment. We can provide general educational information about Medtronic devices and answer technical questions about Medtronic devices and therapies.
To reach the DBS Helpline please call 01923 205101 between 09.00-16.00. If possible, please have your patient identification card ready.
Always carry a card that identifies you as having an implanted device.
Your doctor’s office will send Medtronic the information necessary for you to receive your patient identification card. This information is also used to track your implanted device. If your address, phone, or physician changes, you are responsible for updating your information on file.
