Deep brain stimulation (DBS) consultation, pre-operative and post-operative care services, including programming, are now available at the VCU Parkinson’s and Movement Disorders clinical center.  Dr. Kathryn Holloway and her team have extensive experience with DBS.

Deep brain stimulation is a surgical intervention used to treat movement disorders such as dystonia, essential tremor and Parkinson’s disease when the regimen of existing medications and the various rehabilitation strategies become less effective in managing symptoms.  Dr. Holloway offers DBS services for Parkinson’s, essential tremor, dystonia, tardive dyskinesia and other movement disorders.

If you are interested in making an appointment, please call Holley Stone at (804) 828-5235.

For more information about DBS surgery for movement disorders, please visit the VCU Neurosurgery website.
