Essential Tremor Treatment using the Neuravive Treatment
Posted at: 12 Aug 18
We are pleased to provide a link from National Public Radio on how focused ultrasound treatment solved a case of Essential Tremor (ET) in the United States.
Alan Dambach is a farmer with progressively deteriorating Essential Tremor.
He was referred for to Dr. Howard Eisenberg, chair of neurosurgery at the University of Maryland Medical Center in Baltimore.
After a single day to treatment, he was cured.
So far, more than 1,000 essential tremor patients around the world have been treated with focused ultrasound, says Maurice Ferré, CEO of Insightec, the company that makes the device used to treat Dambach.
