Foothills Surgery Center invites you and your family to join us for a patient education talk with Kara Beasley, DO, of Boulder Neurosurgical and Spine Associates, and Alan Zacharias, MD, of Associated Neurologists. The free health lecture, “Controlling Involuntary ‘Tremors’,” will focus on the newest approaches in diagnosing and treating tremors due to Parkinson’s and Essential Tremor. Come hear about the new medications and therapies combating tremors, as well as deep brain stimulation (DBS), a minimally-invasive surgical procedure that can calm tremors and help with the stiffness and slowness of Parkinson’s disease.
Dr. Beasley is one of very few dually credentialed neurosurgeons and bioethicists in the world. Her areas of interest include tumor, deep brain stimulation for movement disorders, neuromodulation for refractory chronic pain, and the surgical treatment of epilepsy. She is currently able to perform Stage 2 DBS surgery in the outpatient setting at Foothills Surgery Center.
The free health lecture will take place on Thursday, May 12, from 11 a.m. to noon at Calvary Bible Church, 3245 Kalmia Ave., Boulder, CO.
