My most Memorable CLNC® Case involved a patient with a 25-year history of Parkinson’s disease who experienced optimal results from bilateral deep brain stimulators. After the first set of stimulators had reached the life of the medical device, the patient opted to have new stimulators placed for continued parkinson’s management.
