Topic: Deep Brain Stimulation: A Patient’s Perspective Three-patient Panel Discussion with Question and Answer session

We are thrilled to announce our next Support Group meeting to be held at Medtronic World Headquarters. Medtronic has been instrumental in treating dystonia with their deep brain stimulation therapy and has offered to host our next meeting.

We have a unique opportunity to visit the Medtronic headquarters, see the medical devices they manufacture and participate with a panel of three patients who have undergone deep brain stimulation. We will have the opportunity to understand this procedure from the patient’s perspective and learn how it has helped treat dystonia.

All are welcome! Interested friends, family and caregivers are always welcome.

Please RSVP your attendance and bring a form of identification as we will need to show a driving license or Identification card to get your visitors badge to enter Medtronic. See parking information below for building entrance.
