Considering Medtronic DBS Therapy? Have a candid, one-on-one conversation with one of our DBS Ambassadors. These DBS Therapy volunteers are currently receiving DBS Therapy and are happy to share their experience. They are not medical experts or Medtronic employees – they are people who you can connect with to discuss living with DBS.


Talk to a registered nurse who is experienced with Medtronic DBS Therapy. The expert nurse can answer questions like:

How does DBS Therapy work?
How will I know if DBS Therapy is right for me?
What results can I expect?

Our expert nurse can help you understand what to expect before, during, and after receiving DBS Therapy.


What was the procedure like?

What does stimulation feel like?

How has the treatment helped you?
