Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) for Movement Disorders

DBS uses electrical stimulation in the brain to treat movement disorders including dystonia, Parkinson’s disease, and essential tremor or other neurological conditions such as epilepsy. As one of the largest treatment programs for DBS in the United States, more than 1,200 DBS procedures have been performed at Penn Medicine. Through robust research and high-volume expertise, Penn Medicine continues to expand the understanding and use of DBS therapy.
