A Community Event to Inspire Better Health:
Join Carilion Clinic Neurosurgeon Gregory Howes, D.O., to learn more about deep brain stimulation (DBS) for people who suffer from Parkinson's disease and/or essential tremor. DBS uses a surgically implanted medical device, similar to a cardiac pacemaker, to deliver carefully controlled electrical stimulation to precisely targeted areas in the brain.
Come hear more about this procedure and see if it can help you or someone you love!
Light refreshments will be provided.
Registration is required. To register and/or for more information, please contact Carilion Clinic Direct at (800) 422-8482.
