DON’T let essential tremor take away the simple things in life
Focused Ultrasound is an incisionless treatment for essential tremor patients who have not responded to medication. It uses ultrasound waves guided by MRI to treat deep in the brain with no incisions and a short recovery time.
NUMBER of patients treated with focused ultrasound is globally growing rapidly
With MRgFUS >10,000

other patients got back to life after treatment
“One day, my right hand started to shake. Gradually I couldn’t do daily activities like drink or eat, not to mention baking or serving coffee to my customers. I became completely dependent on my staff. At first, the doctors prescribed medications, but they didn’t work for me. Then they suggested the MRI-guided focused ultrasound treatment. I knew I would have to shave my head, but I just wanted to live my dream – to serve my customers again. After a couple of hours or so, on the MRI bed, my hand didn’t shake anymore.”View more patient stories

What is ET and
Essential tremor (ET) is a neurological condition that causes shaking of the hands, head and voice, but it can also cause legs and trunk to shake. Some people even have a feeling of internal tremor. ET is often confused with Parkinson’s disease although it’s eight times more common, affecting an estimated over 60 million people worldwide.*
