Treating Essential Tremor with Sound Waves

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.

He first became interested in using these platforms to educate patients on treatment options that are available. Dr. Rolston recognized that people use social media as their primary news source and believed it was a smart way to connect with patients.

Restarting Incisionless Surgery in Latin America

Keeping patients safe is a key goal at all healthcare institutions. Red de Salud UC CHRISTUS has developed and implemented a safe care protocol that includes temperature checks prior to treatment, allowing only essential people in the MRI suite, requiring everyone to wear masks and excluding family members from the recovery room. This procedure is also 100% ambulatory, meaning that the patient does not have to stay overnight in the hospital after treatment.
