DBS Clinic

After implantation of the deep brain stimulator (DBS), the stimulation can be adjusted to maximize the benefits and minimize any side effects. This adjustment of the stimulator is done in the DBS clinic using a very small hand-held computer which rests on top of your shirt. The DBS clinic is located on the eighth floor of the Diamond Healthcare Center at Vancouver General Hospital (2775 Laurel St.).
