Parkinson’s Disease Patient Explains Deep Brain Stimulation Treatment


In this video from the Michael J. Fox Foundation for Parkinson’s Research, Richie Rothenberg explains deep brain stimulation surgery. Richie was diagnosed with Parkinson’s diseaseat just 37 years old and after building up an immunity to levodopa, decided to have surgery.
Forty-nine-year-old Rothenberg describes his Parkinson’s symptoms both before and after his procedure. He shares what happened when he went in for surgery and that every two to three years he has to have his battery replaced. Over the seven years prior to his deep brain stimulation, doctors told Rothenberg his Parkinson’s disease was getting progressively worse. Since the surgery, his symptoms have gotten better and his quality of life has improved immensely.
