Parkinson's Disease: Advantages and Disadvantages of Deep Brain Stimulation Treatment

In this neurological health podcast, the program coordinator for the deep brain stimulation program for treatment of Parkinson’s disease, Vicky Salak, talks about both the advantages and potential adverse effects of deep brain stimulation for treating Parkinson’s disease. She identifies conditions for being a good candidate for this type of treatment, noting that not all patients diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease are eligible for treatment by deep brain stimulation. Ms. Salak describes how electrodes implanted during the deep brain stimulation operation are controlled. She concludes by providing information on how to be evaluated for deep brain stimulation for Parkinson’s disease at MUSC.
