Essential tremor, also referred to as familial, idiopathic or benign tremor, causes uncontrollable shaking that can impact a person’s ability to live an independent and active lifestyle. When an essential tremor patient does not get tremor relief from medications, the Incisionless Neuravive focused ultrasound treatment could be an option.
Neuravive uses targeted ultrasound waves to treat the small spot in the brain considered to be responsible for causing tremor. No incisions or permanent implants are needed for the treatment and it is performed using focused ultrasound and an MRI scanner.

The COVID-19 pandemic has propelled adoption of telemedicine at an exponential rate. Due to necessity, restrictions on permitted technologies and locations for conducting virtual visits have been lifted to keep our health system functioning and continue care for patients while reducing onsite visits and maintaining recommended physical distancing. Beyond the current crisis, the benefits to telemedicine are numerous and far reaching.
A portrait is what sparked this interview. John recently gave Dr. Garth Rees Cosgrove, Director of Epilepsy and Functional Neurosurgery at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, a portrait he painted. This is not just a portrait – it literally captures the essence of Dr Cosgrove. Dr. Cosgrove performed the Focused Ultrasound treatment for John’s Essential Tremor over one year ago.
