Brain Surgery for Parkinson's

My mom has had the rods put in I think they are called stimulators. Her brain surgery has made a huge difference in her mobility & independence.  She is in her mid 70's & has had PD for 20+ years. Just to let you hear of one success story.  I'm her daughter. & I do not have PD,although I grew up w tremor syndrome.Pamela
