SUBMIT YOUR STORY DBS Therapy for Parkinson’s

Parkinson’s symptoms can make everyday things difficult, like walking, writing, or drinking from a glass. Many people aren’t aware of all the treatment options that can make a difference in daily life with Parkinson’s.

You can change that by sharing your experience with deep brain stimulation (DBS) for Parkinson’s disease. Sharing your story can help countless others to speak up to their physicians and find the relief they need and deserve — so they can live life their way.
