MDS 2020 | Remedial electrode placement in deep brain stimulation and speech impairments

Terry Ellis, PhD, PT, NCS, Boston University College of Health & Rehabilitation Sciences, Sargent College, Boston, MA, discusses the speech impairments that can develop from deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery. This can arise from remedial electrode placement. Although DBS is good for treating cardinal symptoms of Parkinson’s disease, it is not effective for axial symptoms. This interview was recorded during an online conference call with The Video Journal of Neurology (VJNeurology).
