This support group was created to help people with Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) live better and to be a source of information for those interested in learning more about it.
Prospective members will either have DBS, be in the process of learning more about DBS prior to making a decision on whether or not to undergo the surgery, or be a care partner.
We strive to provide an environment where members can be themselves and openly discuss the possible benefits and risks of DBS. In addition, our meetups occasionally will feature invited guest speakers who will speak about topics important to people with DBS, local events and happenings, or about community resources (e.g. physical and speech therapists, exercise groups, and clinical trials).
If you have DBS or just want to learn more this is the place for you. Some of our members have had it for many years so join us.
