Hello. I'm Dr. Phil, licensed and practicing internist. Excellent service is my goal.

Thanks for this question

Yes, it can.

I found the procedure and the link you are referring to. They did this for a severe tremor and you should be able to find a study or hospital to get enrolled.

There are some useful links on this page

I hope this helps.

If you have more questions, just reply. :)

I'm sorry that you have not had a response to your follow up question. The particular treatment that you are asking about is still in clinical trials. It is considered experimental for that reason. Here is a link to the company InSightec showing the location of current trials on this treatment. Unfortunately, none of them are being conducted in the UK at this time.
