Essential Tremor – Am I a Candidate for DBS?

Patients with essential tremor in Denver and the surrounding region now have an option for treating their symptoms – deep brain stimulation (DBS). While all patients should be individually evaluated for DBS, if you answer ‘yes’ to any of the questions below, DBS may be right for you.

  • Are medications ineffective in controlling your tremors?
  • Are tremors interfering with your ability to socialize and preventing you from participating in activities you previously found enjoyable?
  • Are tremors complicating everyday tasks like eating and writing?
