      Steven Oppen was diagnosed in 2013. While not every Parkinson’s patient qualifies as a DBS (deep brain stimulation) candidate, Steven did.

      DBS involves having a neurosurgeon drill one or two holes in the skull, they then insert a battery and a regulating device into a patient’s chest so that she/he can alter the brain signals that need to be regulated.

      In Steven’s case, the first drilling and “lead” placement was performed on Jan. 12. For now, he has not suffered from any major setbacks.

      Steven is confident he will see positive effects: “I’m betting my life on a successful result.”

      Steven we are rooting for you!

      Now back to our PD Community: Have you, or anyone you know, had DBS?
