DBS Surgery Treats Violinist’s Tremor

NBC News – Los Angeles
Roger’s passion is the violin, but a neurological disorder called essential tremor (ET) makes it nearly impossible to play. To steady his hands, Roger underwent brain surgery for a procedure called deep brain stimulation that allowed him to play the violin while doctors fired signals into his brain to target the tremors.
