Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a surgical treatment available to patients with certain motor disorders (Parkinson’s Disease, essential tremor, primary dystonia). A thorough assessment by a multidisciplinary team determines candidacy for this surgical treatment, as not all patients with these diagnoses would benefit from this therapy. Researchers from McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario are conducting a research study to determine if patients across Canada have reasonable access to this treatment and if any barriers exist to accessing this surgical treatment for motor disorders.

You are being invited to complete the brief, voluntary survey as a part of this research study.
