A New Alternative for Parkinson’s Disease Treatment
Comprehensive Care for Parkinson’s Disease
For people living with Parkinson’s disease, motor symptoms can remain challenging even when being managed by medication. A breakthrough technology available at Pacific Neuroscience Institute (PNI) can improve tremors, rigidity, slowness of movement and overall quality of life.
Innovative Deep Brain Stimulation for Parkinson’s Disease
Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is not new – it’s been FDA approved since 1997 – but there have been exciting new advances in technology.
For the first time, DBS BrainSenseTM technology can detect and record patient-specific brain signals continuously. This means that treatment for each patient can be optimized based on everyday activity, not just a clinic visit.
DBS is not a last resort treatment. Earlier DBS surgical implantation can be very beneficial and is more effective for management of motor symptoms. It can represent a window of opportunity for treatment. It is:
- For those considering DBS as a new therapy
- For those who need to take their current medications too frequently
- For patients who can no longer tolerate their current treatment regimen
- For those who wish to update older Medtronic implanted DBS systems
