Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS)
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a treatment for certain problems in your brain. It involves placing electrodes into your brain to control abnormal brain signals. DBS can help manage a wide range of conditions such as Parkinson’s disease and epilepsy.
The NeuroMedical Center’s Deep Brain Stimulation Program
The NeuroMedical Center offers Baton Rouge’s first and only Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Program for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease. Neurologist, Dr. Gerald J. Calegan, along with neurosurgeon, Dr. Paul J. Waguespack, launched the program in 2007 and have successfully performed over 300 successful DBS surgeries.
If your medications aren’t working as well as they used to, DBS may be right for you. Watch our video library to see actual patient testimonials and life-changing results!
