Surgical Procedures at the Parkinson’s Disease Clinic

Surgical procedures such as deep brain stimulation significantly improve cardinal symptoms of the disease such as shaking, excessive movements and akinesia (off-phases) through impulses of implanted electrodes. Shaking can even disappear completely. However, deep brain simulation is only suitable for few selected patients for whom medication no longer works adequately after long-term therapy.
