Hi Kelley! Thanks for this question! Deep brain stimulation can be used for several conditions, including idiopathic Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, and dystonia. In the Parkinson’s realm, it is only indicated for idiopathic PD (meaning it is not effective for secondary parkinsonism or Parkinson-plus syndromes). Hope this provides some clarification!

Happy Thanksgiving!
