Deep brain stimulation (DBS) can be an effective way to treat movement disorders such as Parkinsons disease, essential tremor and dystonia.
In DBS, a doctor implants a system in the patients brain to stimulate it with a small amount of electricity. This stimulation helps to control abnormal movements.
DBS has also been approved to treat obsessive compulsive disorder. Learn more about deep brain stimulation.
