These results are personal
Find out how real people have gotten their life back through Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). See how DBS has worked for them, and dig into the clinical evidence behind why our approach is so effective.
Real stories, real results
While no two people experience Parkinson's disease (PD) or DBS the same way, seeing first-person accounts is a valuable part of your research. Hear from our Boston Scientific patients and their care partners about their DBS experience and the results that followed.
Proof in treating PD
Our technology gives doctors more precise “steering” to treat PD symptoms as they change over time. And we put that to the test. We conducted a large, multicenter clinical trial which showed improved motor function, more “ON-time” hours each day, and an expanded window for DBS to be effective.1,2
