from DTN Brother Tim Thurin:
I had an exciting conversation today with Delt brother Bill Reynolds ’70 (Johnny Dollar), regarding his Parkinson’s surgery that he underwent Monday 3/28/16. He informed me that he had surgery to aggressively attack his Parkinson’s affliction with DBS surgery.
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a surgical procedure used to treat a variety of disabling neurological symptoms—most commonly the debilitating symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. DBS uses a surgically implanted, battery-operated medical device called a neurostimulator—similar to a heart pacemaker and approximately the size of a stopwatch—to deliver electrical stimulation to targeted areas in the brain that control movement, blocking the abnormal nerve signals that cause tremor and PD symptoms
He’s feeling some very positive effects already. Keep ‘em coming!!
We’re hopefully looking forward to his playing golf with us in June at our reunion!! Good luck “Dollar”!! Please wish Dollar your best!
