      A tool called Vercise Cartesia Directional Lead is intended to provide more precise deep brain stimulation (DBS) treatment for people with Parkinson’s disease. Researchers at UHealth — University of Miami Health System recently became the first in the Eastern U.S. and the second in the country to adopt the system.

      What do you think about DBS? Are you interested in learning more about this tool or trying it for yourself?

      I just had DBS done last year and they used the Medtronic Activa SC. I wish I had waited a bit longer for this superior technology.

      Thanks for your comment George.  How are you faring with DBS?  Did the surgery help improve your quality of life?

      Yes, overall it did. Although one side is much better than the other.

        George, I am happy to hear that.  Making the decision to have DBS must be a difficult one.   Glad your outcome was improved…
