Using Deep Brain Stimulation to treat spasmodic dysphonia

Christopher Honey, MD

Deep Brain Stimulation has been used with success for tremor, Parkinson’s Disease, and different forms of dystonia. Dr. Christopher Honey has completed the first clinical trial of DBS for spasmodic dysphonia, partially funded through a grant from the NSDA. Initial results are promising and Dr. Honey should be publishing results in early 2020.
