Dr. Robert Goodman from the Center for Movement Disorders is featured in the story, A life resumed: Surgery rids woman of longtime tremors, published this month in the Asbury Park Press.
The story is about Laurie Lowenstein, who for twenty years suffered from a progressively worsening essential tremor. She was finally able to get relief when Dr. Goodman implanted a Deep Brain Stimulator.
In the article, Lowenstein rejoices in the success of the treatment. She says,”I made a mental list of what I was doing this morning: I could brush my teeth with one hand, put on mascara, cut melon,” she said. “And the most dramatic thing, the most pleasure I get, is being able to write again. It used to be torture to do that. Now it’s a pleasure, to actually be able to write a letter.”
