Welcome to DBS Academy
DBS Academy provides access to the latest Medtronic medical education information in deep brain stimulation therapies including neurosurgical and neurology-focused education materials, information specific to DBS indications, product information, eLearning modules, webinars and other therapy-related materials.
For many people with Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, dystonia*, obsessive compulsive disorder* (OCD), or epilepsy, DBS may make a difference when even small tasks have become challenging. DBS has helped some people stay independent and enabled them to keep doing the activities they love. Medtronic is dedicated to helping people live their best lives. And for decades we’ve partnered with doctors to help alleviate pain, restore health, and extend life. Visit DBS Academy to have access to the tools to aid you along your journey in treating these patients.
Within this site, you'll find two tiers of information available:
TIER ONE contains DBS-related information that will be available on-demand to all users.
TIER TWO contains more in depth therapy information related to patient identification, patient management and surgical tools across the DBS Therapy indications.
