DECIDING TO GET DBS DBS THERAPY FOR PARKINSON’S DISEASE

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, sign up online below, or call us at 877-438-3574.
