Same-Day Tremor Relief

When simple actions become a struggle, you need advanced technology — and neurologic experts — in your corner. We are one of the first centers in our region to offer MR-guided focused ultrasound: an effective, incision-free option for the treatment of essential tremors.

What is MR-Guided Focused Ultrasound?

MR-guided focused ultrasound is approved for the treatment of essential tremor that cannot be controlled with medication. Approval is for treatment of one side of the brain only; you must be at least 22 years old. It is also available for tremor-dominant Parkinson’s disease. Approval is for treatment of one side of the brain only; you must be at least 30 years old.

This method uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology to give your surgeon a clear view of your brain during the procedure. Guided by the MRI, ultrasound waves are concentrated and focused on the specific area of the brain causing your tremors. The beams are able to precisely heat and ablate the targeted areas of tissue without damaging any surrounding areas. This incisionless procedure interrupts the abnormal brain activity that’s causing your tremors.

MR-guided focused ultrasound is an outpatient procedure that follows a personalized plan delivered in one single session. This procedure typically provides immediate tremor improvement in the treated hand with minimal complications. Most patients go home within 23 hours. 

Benefits: 

  • Incisionless outpatient procedure – you can go home the same day
  • Unique and personalized plan designed for you
  • Immediate tremor improvement
  • No referral needed

As always, talk to your doctor about whether this treatment option may be effective for your unique symptoms and condition. You should have a detailed conversation with your physician regarding the risks and benefits of treatment options prior to treatment.
