Advancements in Brain Pacemakers May Improve Parkinson's Patients' Quality of Life

Final thoughts

DBS is not a cure for Parkinson’s Disease. This is an additional treatment to relieve symptoms, so it should not be used to replace medications and other forms of treatment. 

Although DBS has gone through a lot of improvements, much thought still has to be given on whether this is the best option or not.
