Deep Brain Stimulation
We offer deep brain stimulation (DBS), which is an FDA-approved treatment for Parkinson’s disease. It helps correct abnormal electrical activity in the brain. It involves placing tiny wire electrodes in the brain and a small generator in the chest, which sends electrical signals to the brain.
We also offer biplane angiography, which is an advanced, minimally invasive technology used to diagnose and treat stroke, brain aneurysms and other neurological conditions. It produces 3D images of the brain that can identify blockages that could potentially cause a stroke. The images can also assist physicians with placing stents and guiding catheters through the brain.
