Follow a patient as they undergo DBS surgery for Parkinson disease

The Suncoast News Network has done a multi-part series on one of our Parkinson disease patients as he went through the process 0f getting deep brain stimulation. Mr. Delaney discusses his Parkinson disease and what led to the decision to get the surgery. Then reporter and anchor Hallie Peilet from Suncoast News Network follows him as he goes through pre-op, the lead implantation, and the battery implantation. She then also follows up with his device programming and how he’s doing afterward.

You can watch the whole series here on the Suncoast News Network website.
