In this episode you’ll meet Loreli Jenkins, an 80-year-old who was suffering from severe tremors that were taking a toll on her quality of life.
Dr. Patrick Senatus, Medical Director of the Deep Brain Stimulation Program for the Hartford HealthCare Ayer Neuroscience Institute, treated Loreli with Deep Brain Stimulation, or DBS, a surgical procedure that helped free Loreli from decades of medication and maintain her independence – tremor free.
