DBS Therapy for Movement Disorders

Giving patients a chance to live their best lives

Movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease (PD) and essential tremor (ET) take a devastating emotional and economic toll on millions of patients and their families worldwide.1,2 Many struggle with quality of life, as their symptoms cause them to feel embarrassment and exhaustion trying to balance their on- and off-times (tremors) to get through the day.

 

What if you could offer patients a way to fuel their independence by managing their debilitating symptoms? We have designed the St. Jude Medical Infinity™ DBS system to help your patients with PD and ET gain control of their symptoms so they can get back to enjoying their lives.
