After a deep brain stimulation procedure, Parkinson’s disease patient Frank Maver returns to see neurologist Andrea DeLeo, who adjusts the settings on his implant device to maximize results and diminish tremors and rigidity. “Following the procedure, Mr. Maver’s rigidity improved notably - by about 75 percent - and his tremor was reduced by approximately 60 percent,” she says. “The most rewarding part of being involved in the (deep brain stimulation) program offered at Community Hospital is seeing the smile on my patient’s face once the initial programming is completed and observing the overwhelming satisfaction that they have finally achieved that moment of glory in their battle to regain their lives, despite their disease,” DeLeo says.
