High Frequency Focused Ultrasound

Posted by parkin41 @parkin41, Feb 22 9:43am

Has anyone or does anyone know of anyone who has gone under High Frequency Focused Ultrasound to stop their tremors and has had either positive or negative results from it? I am considering having my dad go under this treatment and would like more information on the effects from it.

Hello @parkin41,

I appreciate your post about using ultrasound to treat tremors. I had not heard of this before. I did a little research on the internet and I see that Cleveland Clinic has some information about this. Here is the link to the article, https://my.clevelandclinic.org/health/treatments/21087-mr-guided-focused-ultrasound-for-treatment-of-tremor. I see that this treatment is being considered for both tremors related to Parkinson's or essential tremors as well.

@parkin41, has your doctor suggested this to you as a treatment, or are you just looking into it?

I would like to invite other members of our Parkinson's group to add their thoughts, @ggopher @bruce0712 @johnjames @margaretob

I read that, thanks. I'm looking into it myself. I just wanted to hear from first hand experience.

As it appears to be a fairly new treatment, @parkin41, I'm not sure how much first-hand experience you will get. I wish you well as you seek a good treatment plan for your tremors.
