An Israeli startup, Insightec, says they have discovered a way to alleviate the symptoms of Parkinson’s tremors in a way that is safe and effective reports the Times of Israel.

Parkinson’s disease … causes uncontrolled movements but differs from Essential Tremor in the parts of the body affected by the disease — involving also legs and chin, the timing of the tremor, and other emerging conditions related to the disease like stiffness and motor slowness.

To reduce these symptoms, Insightec has developed Exablate Neuro, a treatment that allows neurosurgeons to perform an incisionless brain surgery to alleviate tremor associated with Essential Tremor and Parkinson’s disease.
