Health Talks: Deep brain stimulation for Parkinson’s tremors

For people who experience tremors from Parkinson’s disease and other conditions, neuromodulation treatments, such as deep brain stimulation (DBS), can provide relief when medications aren’t working or are causing unpleasant side effects. These neuromodulation treatments involve using technology to alter nerve activity by delivering electrical stimulation directly to a target area.

In this video, neurologist Zachary Jordan, MD, explains how DBS works once it's implanted and what the patient can expect. Watch the full Health Talks video above to learn more about this innovative treatment offered at Ohio State’s Center for Movement Disorders and Neuromodulation.
