Parkinson’s News TodayIncision-free ‘Surgery’ Lowers Hard-to-treat Parkinson’s Motor Symptoms

Exablate Neuro from Insightec targets and removes a tiny part of the globus pallidus using precision MRI-guided focused ultrasound. This reduces activity and motor symptoms like tremor and stiffness. During the procedure, patients are awake, allowing doctors to detect immediate effects and adjust as needed. There is no need for anesthesia or a hospital stay following the procedure. Exablate Neuro, unlike deep brain stimulation, does not require any surgical incisions or brain implants. Additionally, the technique reduces the risk of serious infection or brain bleeding.
