Parkinson’s disease advances over time, and no two people experience the exact same progression. That’s why, instead of adapting a pacemaker technology to fit our DBS system, we spent a decade adapting the perfect technology to meet the specific needs of the brain and the way it changes. The DBS system you choose will be your partner to manage your Parkinson’s disease symptoms, and our goal was to create the most steadfast, reliable partner you could ask for.
Boston Scientific’s Directional DBS Systems* have current steering technology, which gives your doctor an incredibly sensitive and precise “steering wheel” to manage the challenging terrain as your body’s needs change. With the ability to choose between the rechargeable Vercise Gevia™ or the thin and comfortable non-rechargeable Vercise™ PC, no matter where your Parkinson’s disease goes, our Directional DBS Systems will follow and create more opportunities for therapy to be effective.
Indications for Use: The Vercise™ Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Systems are indicated for use in bilateral stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) or globus pallidus internus (GPi) as an adjunctive therapy in reducing some of the symptoms of moderate to advanced levodopa-responsive Parkinson’s disease (PD) that are not adequately controlled with medication.
