Caption: Treatment for Parkinson's Disease. Image 2 of 13. Surgeon adjusting the supportive metal frame screwed to the skull of a patient with Parkinson's Disease. The patient is about to undergo brain surgery, known as Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS), to remove the tremors caused by the disease. Electrodes are surgically implanted in the brain, where they provide continuous electrical stimulation. This stimulation blocks the signals that cause the tremors. The electrodes are controlled by a pulse generator unit fitted in the patient's chest. For a sequence showing DBS surgery, see M566/233- 245.
