Focused Ultrasound

Focused ultrasound thalamotomy is a more recent incisionless surgical option. A surgeon uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to send sound waves through the skin and skull that target the thalamus. The sound waves generate heat that destroys the brain tissue that causes the tremors.

Learn more about this treatment in our video interview with two of Dr. Gordon Baltuch's essential tremor patients.
