Patient Resource Center for NBS in neurosurgery

HELSINKI, Finland – July 1, 2013 -- In order to help explain the role of NBS mapping for patients with a diagnosis of brain tumor or epilepsy, Nexstim has developed a dedicated Patient Resource Center website.

The Nexstim Patient Resource Center brings together information from physicians and feedback from patients. The primary goal of the site is to help patients decide whether NBS mapping could help make the optimum treatment decision for them and where they might find institutions with NBS devices in clinical use. Knowing the locations of vital brain functions prior to surgery helps the neurosurgeon lower the risk of motor deficits post-operatively and thus preserve a patient´s quality of life.

The site also explains how NBS works, how the mapping procedure is performed and where more information may be found. The site has several patient cases and clips of videos on NBS mapping.
