Improving symptoms of Parkinson's disease, essential tremor and dystonia.
Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is like a pacemaker for the brain. The tiny device is implanted by the specialized neurosurgeons at Inova Parkinson's and Movement Disorders Center and then programmed by our movement disorders specialists. The device delivers a carefully controlled stimulation of electricity to precisely targeted areas. The electric stimulation interrupts the brain's faulty signals and provides measurable relief to symptoms, allowing for a significant reduction in medications and an improvement in quality of life.
