Movement Disorders Neuromodulation Center


Are your Parkinson’s disease, Essential tremor, or dystonia symptoms controlling your life? Are your medications for these conditions starting to wear off or causing you unwanted side-effects? If so, then you may be candidate for a surgical procedure, including deep brain stimulation (DBS). DBS is an established, proven, and FDA-approved treatment for movement disorders such as PD, ET, and dystonia, as well as certain other conditions. DBS is a surgery which preserves and restores quality of life by increasing function and reducing side effects of medications. Since this procedure was developed in the mid-1980’s, hundreds of thousands of patients have gained back control of their life with DBS.

The University of South Florida (USF) Department of Neurosurgery and Brain Repair was one of the first sites in North America to offer this therapy and is currently one of the busiest centers offering this procedure nation-wide. As such, we have a wealth of experience and knowledge which we can use to help you get the best results possible. Our dedicated, skilled, and passionate nurses, neurologists, and neurosurgeons will guide you and your family through every step of the process and follow along with you as you get back to being you and doing the things that matter to you and your family. If you have any questions, please give us a call, or email us. We’re always there to help.
