Marla and Scott Tobia's daughter, Laura, has a rare genetic variant of dystonia and is in the beginning stages of being treated by Deep Brain Stimulation. Deep brain stimulation is a surgery in which small electrodes are implanted into a patient’s brain. These electrodes, called leads, deliver stimulation to areas in the patient’s brain that are involved in movement, overriding the problematic signals. It has been used in patients with Parkinson’s disease, Tourette syndrome and dystonia, among others.
