Portugal has implanted the country's first neurostimulation device for the treatment of Parkinson's disease. The operation was successfully performed last week at the S-o Jo-o hospital, led by Professor Dr Rui Vaz. The procedure is effective in controlling the symptoms of Parkinson's in a large proportion of patients, the health ministry said, promising wider access to the technology.
