Technology has developed at a rapid pace over the last few years, and now there are more options to be aware of when you’re considering Deep Brain Stimulation surgery for Parkinson’s Disease.
Dr. Sarah King, PT, DPT interviews Dr. Bas Bloem about the future of Parkinson’s care. Dr. Bloem is a Movement Disorder Specialist in the Netherlands who created a network of Parkinson's healthcare providers called ParkinsonNet that is completely revolutionizing the way countries provide Parkinson's care.
Are you considering having Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) for your Parkinson’s symptoms? Have you heard of DBS but still aren’t clear on exactly what it does, who it’s for, or when someone should consider it? You’re in the right place.
Today I want to share with you an interview I did with a friend and physical therapy colleague, Dr. Eric Rhoden, PT, DPT.
He shares my passion for Parkinson’s, is incredibly well versed in Deep Brain Stimulation, and took some time to answer the most common questions I hear from our online community about DBS.
