Hello , I just wondered if anyone could enlighten me. I had dbs at bristol and whilst its effect on my tremor has been wnderful thwe have ben several side effects in the areas of balance, voice and a facial tick. I am therefore seeking a 2nd opinion and gDBS kit (model Gevia) as i am fitted with.
I am told that the Gevia can be programmed with 'Directional Steering ’ a fairly new and more accurate form of programming but it doesnt force the use of this feature and it can be programmed without the use of DS.
My question is does anybody know of the use of the Boston scientific vercise Gevia
Stimulator at oxford . Furtheermore can they confim thAT OXFORD have experience of using the Gevia for DBS using directional steering and /or not using the DS feature (ie; its not obligatory)
