Giving Opportunities in Neuroscience
- New Parkinson’s Disease Resource Center helps change lives - CPMC’S Arshia Sadreddin M.D., medical director of Movement Disorders and the Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Program, has created a new specialty clinic to help people with Parkinson’s and other movement disorders. Says Dr. Sadreddin, “There are so many things that we can do for patients now, including a procedure called Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS). DBS is essentially a pacemaker for the brain which can effectively help control tremors and improve motor symptoms.” And the difference can be life changing.
