WHAT TO EXPECT FROM DBS THERAPY

A FULLER LIFE MAY BE AHEAD OF YOU

HELPING YOU REACH A BETTER QUALITY OF LIFE

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) therapy is an opportunity for many to regain their independence. It’s being able to cook your favorite meal for the first time in years, brush your teeth, or dress yourself in the morning. It’s that moment when you can finally continue your profession and you feel like you have your life back.

While DBS therapy is not a cure for Parkinson’s disease or essential tremor, it may reduce your movement symptoms enough to significantly improve your overall quality of life. Ultimately DBS therapy is meant to help you enjoy a fuller, more independent life.

AN OPPORTUNITY TO TAKE BACK CONTROL

If you’re considering DBS therapy or recovering from a DBS therapy procedure, you may be wondering what’s next. The good news? You have a lot to look forward to. When receiving DBS therapy, always remember to carefully follow your care team’s instructions and know the important safety information for your system. The following information is important for both you and your caregiver to know before and after receiving DBS therapy.
