DBS Companies:

        Abbott Neuromodulation-

        Today, people living with movement disorders like Parkinson’s disease and essential tremor

        have a number of different treatments to consider – including physical therapy, medication,

        and surgical options like DBS therapy. While there’s no cure for these conditions, finding the

        right treatment can still help you get better control of your symptoms, move more freely, and

        get back to the daily activities you love – and doing them with the people you care about.

        Here are a few important treatment options you and your doctor may consider.

        Boston Scientific-

        It’s important to understand and advocate for your Parkinson’s treatment, whether it’s

        DBS or another solution. Get to know the DBS device and see how it works. Read about

        the results. And learn why timing is crucial when it comes to DBS implementation. 



       The first complete DBS system with sensing, directionality, and visual programming,

       giving you access to the data-driven insights you need to make informed decisions.
