This week: Deep brain stimulation, diabetes and the Salvation Army

May 9, 2019

Deep brain stimulation is a procedure that can help alleviate some of the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and other conditions with movement disorders.

Upstate Medical University neurosurgeon Duemani Reddy explains the procedure, the types of patients it may help, and how it’s accomplished in this week’s “HealthLink on Air.”

Also this week, nurse practitioner/diabetes educator Cassandra Bradford tells about type 1 and type 2 diabetes, and Salvation Army Major David Dean explains the services his organization provides in Syracuse.

Tune in this Sunday, May 12 at 6 a.m. and 9 p.m. for more on WRVO.
