“I always loved baking, so I decided to open my own bakery. My right hand started to shake and I couldn’t do daily activities myself like drink or eat, not to mention baking or serving coffee. I became dependent on my staff. The doctors prescribed drugs, but they didn’t work for me. One day they suggested the Neuravive procedure. I just wanted to live my dream – to serve my customers again. After a couple of hours, on the MRI bed, my hand didn’t shake anymore.”
I was very impressed with the team at UMD and by the technology. I was a systems analyst many years ago and the system software must be very advanced.
I have researched focused ultrasound for my essential tremor patient blog and I thought I understood what to expect but it exceeded my expectations and all I can say is, Wow.
During focused ultrasound, treatment assessment is done by drawing spirals. Each time that I drew a spiral, I was aware of the improvement in my tremor.
I am grateful for the technology and that the company is focused on treating tremors.
