Deep Brain Stimulation Gives Life Back to Teen Boy

Nineteen-year-old Jacob Bayne was unable to walk for six years, immobile for 10 years. His sense of normalcy depended on others; friends carried him into movie theaters and malls; his family helped him attend school. And at its worst, Bayne’s disorder was completely debilitating, until he underwent deep brain stimulation (DBS) at Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center.
