After surgery patients show a striking improvement and are able to return to their normal lives. We are able to renew our patient’s connection to life with these brain pacemakers. Brain pacemakers achieve successful results in Parkinson’s patients who no longer respond to medication…
Countdown for Epilepsy!
If we look into these disorders step by step the research that appears to be the closest to completion is epilepsy research. We expect the brain pacemaker studies concerning epilepsy patients to be completed by the end of this year. We already know that highly successful results…
