New Cutting Edge Parkinson's Trial being done in USA

Cutting Edge, brand new

Parkinson's trial being done in USA.

By the grace of God, putting me in the right place at the right time  I have become part of an exciting  new nation wide trial that could revolutionalise the way Parkinson's is treated in the future.

I am one of 4 subjects in Ohio and one of 8 nationwide.

It's testing a non invasive procedure replacing deep brain stimulation.  There is no incision - it is done completely out side the head using an ultra sound procedure.

The initial results have been amazing & without the risk that surgery carries.

It is for people with primarily unilateral tremor  (tremor is worse on one side.)

 I always wondered how to get in on a trial.

If you or some one you know has Parkinsons and are wondering the  same, info is as follows:

Protocal No    PD002
                        WIRB Protocol20160947
                         2016W0051

Sponsor          InSightec

Investigator    Vibbor Krishna
                         480 Medical Center Dr
                          Columbus, OH 43210

I was referred by my neurologist  -assume that is the route but it is so new that most doctors are not aware of it's existance.   You may have to track down Dr. Krishna's phone  # through OSU (Ohio State University) Hospitals Department of Neuromodulation
