  1. I’m considering this treatment. Is this the same treatment that was touted at a Boca Raton Florida seminar several years ago when it was in the process of review for Medicare approval and now is approved?

  2. Had this done at age 64. It was life changing. Getting the use of my hands was the best thing ever since working on wood projects is back in my life. I thank you for your emails and feedback helping me make this decision.

  3. I just had DBS in February after suffering with head, neck, vocal, and hand tremors for 10 years. I had excellent results and would definitely recommend this treatment. Important to find a doctor that you trust.

  4. I had the Medtronics DBS back in 2006 and it worked for 5 years. Its all been down hill ever since. I had repositioning in 2017. No good results. In 2019 I had it all removed and Boston Scientific inserted. No change.

    I have had ET since I was 16 I am now 80. I don’t want to discourage anyone. I am just one out of millions that didn’t have the best results.

  5. i will be 85 in September and would any of these treatments would help me at my age to get use of my hands back ,i love to cook and crochet, sew ,cross stitch and work on Computer and having a hard time doing any of this plus it has affected my speech ,and walking . my questions do you think any of these treatments would help me at my age , i have stents ,Afib ,am on Warfarin . thank you for your input in advance
