DBS Plus: An Experimental Treatment for Parkinson’s

Watch this presentation to learn about a new Parkinson’s treatment being studied at the UK HealthCare Brain Restoration Center that combines deep brain stimulation (DBS) with an experimental nerve-grafting procedure. In this combined approach, called DBS+, the surgeon transplants peripheral nerve tissue into an area of the brain where neurons are dying. The grafted cells are being tested for their ability to release chemicals believed to rejuvenate the brain’s weary dopamine-producing neurons.
