Parkinson’s disease patients in Ohio received the first new deep brain stimulator (DBS), which was created and successfully tested in Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. This is one of the first companies in the USA to transplant a new deep brain stimulation device. The DBS device, in fact, acts as a brain pacemaker. The wire passes under the skin through the holes in the skull and neck, stimulating the brain for more normal electrical activity, and the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease are decreased.

OSU doctors call this a major milestone in the treatment of Parkinson’s disease.
