Deep brain stimulation DBS

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a surgical treatment involving the implantation of a medical device, which sends electrical impulses to specific parts of the brain. DBS in select brain regions has provided remarkable therapeutic benefits for otherwise treatment-resistant movement disorders such as Parkinson’s Disease, Essential Tremor and Dystonia.

Intrathecal Baclofen Therapy

ITB TherapySM uses two fully implantable components – an infusion pump and an intraspinal catheter – to deliver precise amounts of Lioresal® Intrathecal (baclofen injection) directly into the intrathecal space.

Because ITB Therapy delivers baclofen directly to the spinal cord, it may relieve severe spasticity with smaller amounts of medication than when taken orally. This may present an alternative for patients who do not respond to or cannot tolerate therapeutic oral doses.
