Sharon's Story: New Technology Stops Essential Hand Tremors


Completing the simplest of tasks seemed impossible for Sharon Deno. The 76-year-old Athens resident had a difficult time holding the newspaper, signing her name, and enjoying the hobby she loves most: gardening. Sharon experiences essential tremor (ET), a disorder that causes uncontrollable shaking in her hands, limiting her ability to live an independent and active lifestyle. Learn how Sharon’s experience with MR-guided Focused Ultrasound Treatment allowed her to walk out of Miami Valley Hospital with no hand tremors just hours after her arrival. She says this experience will help her get back to enjoying the little things in life.
