Welcome to our experts and participants! My name is Yuying and I’m an Internal Medicine resident at the Mount Sinai Hospital in NYC. Thank you to our experts in advance for sharing their insight on one of the newest treatment modalities for essential tremor. Essential tremor is the most common movement disorder and can significantly impact a patient's quality of life. While pilot studies have suggested efficacy of focused ultrasound thalamotomy for essential tremor, this is the first double-blinded, randomized, sham-controlled trial demonstrating efficacy of this therapy for medication-refractory essential tremor.
