Living With DBS Therapy Deep Brain Stimulation for Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Following the implantation of the Reclaim DBS system, your healthcare team will program the system to your specific needs.
The next step in your OCD treatment is adjusting to life with the Reclaim DBS system in place. Your healthcare team will be on hand to answer questions and support your treatment process
Before your battery runs out, you’ll need to replace the neurostimulator of your Reclaim DBS system through a surgical procedure.
