Essential Tremor

Premier Health providers answer frequently asked questions about essential tremor.

What are the expected outcomes of deep brain stimulation treatment for essential tremor?

Deep brain stimulation has an excellent outcome. We expect patient’s tremors to be extremely well controlled. Some patients have 100 percent tremor control and other patients have somewhere in the ninetieth percentile tremor control. This produces very, very good tremor outcomes. There is some small risk to surgical procedures such as deep brain stimulation, and that's primarily with anesthesia or infection. These are typical surgical procedure risks that you would expect.
