Deep brain stimulation (DBS) can help reset faulty brain signals that cause symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, and epilepsy. In this procedure, also called neuromodulation, doctors implant a device that produces electrical impulses to disrupt irregular brain signals that cause involuntary movements. Stanford Health Care’s sophisticated technology and data-driven approach enable us to program your stimulator settings for optimal results.
