Advice & Tips: If you are considering DBS as and option, you can always leave me a message with any questions you may have. It is a tough decision to make. A very individual and personal decision. I am very fortunate to have been a good candidate for the surgery and it has proved to be a good decision on my part. But it does come with some risks as well as its benefits. My PD is much more manageable now than it was a few years ago because of the DBS along with some medication changes.
