Unlike other surgical treatments for dystonia, deep brain stimulation (DBS) therapy is possibly reversible and adjustable. It uses an implanted device that stimulates specific areas of the brain, enabling circuits that control movement to function better. This may relieve the symptoms of your disease.
DBS therapy for dystonia uses a surgically implanted medical device similar to a cardiac pacemaker to deliver electrical stimulation to precisely targeted areas within the brain.
All treatment and outcome results are specific to the individual patient, and will form part of your consultation with your healthcare professional.
