Arlene's 'Life Is Back,' Thanks To Surgery To Control Her Hand Tremors   
“You don’t realize, when you have two able hands, what tremors will do,” says Arlene Mammen.

The 69-year-old had suffered for years with a condition called essential tremor, that caused her to lose control of her hands. Her quality of life plummeted.

“I couldn’t do anything. I can’t tell you how many times I burned myself with coffee," she says. "I couldn’t get my key in the lock to secure my doors when I left home. I couldn’t swipe my debit card. People, sometimes strangers, helped me with everything.”

Medications improved her hand function for a while but, just after she retired, she noticed a change. Arlene and Paul Gigante, MD, neurosurgeon at Fairview Southdale Hospital, decided to proceed with deep brain stimulation surgery—an option for patients who have not improved with medications.
