Please pass on this interesting article below to Dr Cherie.

Dr Cherie informed me that  Dr Wu had tried a similar treatment ten years previously with mixed success

But now it appears the previous problems with the procedure  have been  mostly resolved

I hope your clinic can have this treatment available in the next year for patients with Parkinson's
