Our DBS System

Live Your Best Life

Medical technology continues to advance, developing more effective therapy options for movement disorders. This means that you have new alternatives to struggling with recurring, uncontrollable symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (PD) or essential tremor (ET). After consulting with your physician, you may learn that one alternative for living your best life may be the St. Jude Medical Infinity™ DBS system.

DBS therapy improved PD patients good quality “on time” (periods of symptom control) for most waking hours1 and without dyskinesias versus medication alone.2 ET patients had improved overall quality of life.3
