Medtronic Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Therapy is an FDA-approved treatment clinically demonstrated to reduce some of the most disabling motor symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease. Developed by Medtronic in collaboration with clinicians and researchers from around the world starting in the 1980s, the therapy was approved by the FDA for the treatment of advanced Parkinson’s disease in 2002. Medtronic DBS Therapy has benefited more than 125,000 patients worldwide.

Medtronic DBS Therapy uses a surgically implanted medical device, similar to a cardiac pacemaker, to deliver electrical stimulation to precisely targeted areas of the brain to reduce some of the most disabling motor symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease, including shaking, stiffness and movement difficulties. In addition, Medtronic DBS Therapy stimulation settings can be adjusted in response to individuals’ Parkinson’s symptoms, and the system can be turned off or removed. Removal would require surgery.
