Dystonia Alex's Sory


There are very few options for the treatment of dystonia. 

Deep Brain Stimulation is one of them. In this case and many others it has given sufferers of dystonia a large portion of their lives back. This surgery is something that I have been considering if the current treatment path I am on does not continue to improve. I have hope that functional neurology combined with the BOTOX will work, but I also want to explore other possibilities so that I am prepared if it does not work for me. I wanted to share these videos so that anyone considering DBS can see what the surgery looks like. So happy for Alex and her successful treatment.
