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?
