MRI-guided focused ultrasound improving quality of life
Essential tremor relief
For more than a decade, Evelyn Bowen dealt with the frustration of her hands shaking so much that she often had to use a spoon to eat instead of a fork. Evelyn was diagnosed with essential tremor. But with the help of neurosurgeon, Dr. Michael Kinsman, she is seen a dramatic improvement in her tremors and in her quality of life.
