We hope you’ll join us for the March installment of the 2021 PAA Webinar Series, Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). Presented by Dr. Drew Falconer and sponsored by Abbott Pharmaceuticals, this webinar will explore DBS as a safe and effective therapy used to treat the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. Participants will also have the opportunity to hear from a Patient Ambassador during the presentation.
DBS systems are implanted devices, like pacemakers, that deliver mild electrical pulses to modulate specific targets in the brain through thin wires called leads. The amount of stimulation in DBS is controlled by a pacemaker-like device placed under the skin in your upper chest. The wire travels under your skin and connects the DBS device to the electrodes in your brain.
Abbott Pharmaceuticals is an industry leader in treatments across multiple disciplines – from movement disorders to chronic pain. We are thrilled to have their sponsorship support for this webinar!
