Have you been diagnosed with major depressive disorder?
If you answered yes and are open to considering a surgical option for your depression, you may qualify to participate in a clinical research study evaluating deep brain stimulation to treat severe major depressive disorder (MDD).
The study is investigating whether or not using a deep brain stimulation (DBS) system* to stimulate a structure in the brain known as Brodmann Area 25 is safe and effective for treating depression that is refractory to currently available therapies.
