Treating Essential Tremor with Sound Waves
Essential tremor, also referred to as familial, idiopathic or benign tremor, causes uncontrollable shaking that can impact a person’s ability to live an independent and active lifestyle. When an essential tremor patient does not get tremor relief from medications, Focused Ultrasound could be an option.
Focused Ultrasound uses targeted ultrasound waves to treat the small spot in the brain considered to be responsible for causing tremor. No incisions or permanent implants are needed for the treatment and it is performed in an MRI scanner.
Incisionless treatment (no scalpel, no cuts)
Often performed on an outpatient basis
Immediate results on treated hand
Safe and effective with minimal side effects
FDA approved and clinically proven
Over 3,500 patients treated worldwide and growing
Important Safety Information
For short periods of time during the focused ultrasound treatment, you may experience nausea, pain or other sensations. There is a risk that you could develop temporary or permanent numbness/tingling, imbalance, unsteadiness, gait disturbance, and muscle weakness. For more safety information, please Click Here
