Deep Brain Stimulation for Movement Disorders

with Darlene Lobel, MD


Generally, DBS candidates are patients under age 75 who have a movement disorder and a declining quality of life, are experiencing worsening of coordination and control of movement and/or have had an adequate trial of medications. DBS uses advanced computer technology to pinpoint areas of the patient’s brain where faulty electrical signals are triggering symptoms.

Take advantage of this opportunity to speak to Cleveland Clinic neurosurgeon Darlene Lobel, MD, about innovative applications of deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery for movement disorders.
