What is Frameless Deep Brain Stimulation?

Holy Cross Hospital First in the Mid-Atlantic Region To Implant New Deep Brain Stimulation System from Holy Cross Health on Vimeo.

The technique, frameless Deep Brain Stimulation implant was first used by Zachary T. Levine, Director Neurosciences Holy Cross Health, MD, and consists of an implant that sends stimulation through a lead to targeted areas in the brain. The technique allows for the physician to steer the current to improve the symptoms with lower battery use or improve the symptoms without any side effects. Dr. Levine says this technology is very helpful to patients and was able to remove a patient’s tremor immediately.
