5Patient Review
I was diagnosed with dystonia in 2021 and prescription medications did not alleviate the symptoms of involuntary eye closing, tremors in my hands and difficulty swallowing. In fact, the symptoms were getting worse over time, especially difficulty in swallowing. My doctors said brain surgery was the next necessary step. In November 2021, I consulted Dr. Albert John Fenoy, and he told me the symptoms I was experiencing could be reduced in severity or eliminated entirely with deep brain stimulation surgery. Two electrodes would be inserted into my brain. Two weeks later a computer and battery are implanted in my chest and wires are run internally up my neck and inside my scalp
