Innovative treatment for Parkinson’s disease is now available at The Moncton Hospital thanks to donors. 

June 2024

 

Deep brain simulation is a surgical treatment that involves implanting a device, sometimes referred to as pacemaker for the brain. The device sends electrical impulses to specific areas of the brain that can alleviate symptoms of various neurological disorders and bring significant relief to patients.


The $250,000 cost of equipment was funded by our donors. The Department of Health is providing $394,000 in annual operational funding.

The first procedure at The Moncton Hospital will be performed later this month.
