Hi John B

We have lots of information on our dedicated deep brain stimulation webpage - http://www.parkinsons.org.uk/dbs

There is information on what deep brain stimulation involves, life after surgery (including driving recommendations) and some accounts of people's experiences of deep brain stimulation.

Hope you find it useful.

Best wishes

we have quite a few people on the forum who have had dbs. i am sure they will speak for themselves but generally the outcomes have been good.
