High-Intensity Focused Ultrasound
Beat Your Tremor and Take Back Control
Focused ultrasound offers a next generation incisionless outpatient procedure for patients with essential tremor or tremor dominant Parkinson’s Disease who don’t get acceptable tremor relief from medications. Marcus Neuroscience Institute will begin offering HiFU treatment in Boca Raton this fall. However if you’d like to receive treatment sooner, we can refer you to our trusted partners within the Baptist Health system at Baptist Health Miami Neuroscience Institute. They have extensive experience with HiFU treatment and have performed over 100 cases.

What is High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU)?
High-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) directs over 1,000 beams of ultrasound waves through the skull and directly to the problem area with extreme precision. The combined energy of these sound waves increases significantly where they meet, enabling them to stun and destroy lesions that might be disrupting the normal circuitry of the brain. During the procedure, patients are awake and able to assist in evaluating response, including tremor improvement and potential side effects.
