BCH 1st in Colorado to offer focused ultrasound treatment

New MR-guided focused ultrasound offers a non-invasive alternative to deep brain stimulation for treating
essential tremor.

For about 7 million Americans involuntary tremors are a constant problem. These tremors can interfere with just about everything — getting dressed, drinking a cup of coffee, writing, typing or using a cell phone. The trembling can be caused by Parkinson’s disease, but more often it’s caused by essential tremor, a benign and typically inherited condition.

Hear board-certified neurosurgeon Kara Beasley, DO, describe the symptoms of essential tremor and the latest treatments, including MR-guided focused ultrasound — a new, incisionless treatment.
