Dystonia surgical treatment

Dystonia surgical treatment

If you suffer from a more debilitating case of dystonia, especially generalized dystonia, surgery may be an option. Baclofen pumps can be inserted into your spine if you suffer from severe lower extremity dystonia. If you’ve been diagnosed with generalized dystonia or an upper body dystonia that doesn’t respond well to medications, deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a treatment option.
