Do you or a loved one have Parkinson’s disease or experience tremors or involuntary movements?

Join Joshua Aronson, MD, Rebecca Thompson, MD and Carissa Thurston, RN, CNRN, Neurosurgery Clinic Nurse to learn about Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS).

At this presentation you will:

  • Learn how DBS works— its benefits and challenges
  • Find out if you are a good candidate for DBS
  • Get an overview of the surgical evaluation and procedure, as well as recovery & healing
