The therapy is currently licenced in many locations around the world, including Canada, Europe and the United States, to address the disabling symptoms of essential tremor, advanced Parkinson's disease and chronic intractable primary dystonia. In Europe, Canada and Australia, DBS therapy is licenced for the treatment of refractory epilepsy.
