On average, tremor improves by ~50% and effects are sustained in most people up to 6 years after treatment. Only one side will be treated, you will therefore have persistent tremor on the other side. Still, treating one side results in significant improvements in quality of life and function. Side effects include risks of numbness or tingling or walking difficulty, which are rarely serious or disabling.
