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 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.
