Deep Brain Stimulation Swedish Hospital Denver

The Deep Brain Stimulation program offers comprehensive patient-centered care

Our individualized care begins at the initial consultation and continues through treatment, support and follow up wellness care. Our integrative approach includes both inpatient and outpatient care.

Pre-Surgical Evaluation

Our first step is establishing if Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is the best next step in your treatment program. Our evaluation is designed to meet the current DBS guidelines and may include neuroconsultation visit, cognitive assessments, brain MRI, counseling appointment, neuropsychological testing, rehabilitation consultation and/or primary care physician appointment for general health concerns . DBS is not right for everyone, and these processes help our team discover the best treatment options.
