Dr. Binit B. Shah Discusses Focused Ultrasound Thalamotomy for Essential Tremor Patients
Medication alone does not control symptoms for nearly half of all patients with essential tremor, the most common movement disorder. But, according to a pilot study in the Aug.15 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM), MRI-guided focused ultrasound thalamotomy may be a promising, noninvasive treatment option for these individuals.
The NEJM investigators reported a significant improvement in all 15 of the patients treated in this pilot study. Study author Binit B. Shah, MD, assistant professor of neurology at the Parkinson’s Disease and Movement Disorders Division at the University of Virginia, spoke with Neurology Today about the implications of this study for neurologists and essential tremor patients. For the full story, see the Oct. 3 issue of Neurology Today.
