Hello @sainath

Here is a link to Mayo Clinic’s website regarding Deep Brain Stimulation in the treatment of Parkinson’s, https://www.mayoclinic.org/tests-procedures/deep-brain-stimulation/about/pac-20384562

Are you currently considering this procedure in order to minimize your symptoms?

Hello Sainath:

It appears that there are doctors at the Mayo facilities in Florida and Minnesota you can evaluate and advise you regarding this procedure. I wish you well!

I look forward to hearing from you.

Hello, @sainath — just wondering if you ended up setting up an evaluation of your Parkinson's during your time in the U.S.? Are you still thinking about the possibility of deep brain stimulation?
