    Small Clinical Trial in Florida for treatment-resistant OCD

    The purpose of this study is to evaluate the use of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) to reduce symptom severity and enhance the quality of life for patients with treatment-resistant obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD).

    Expected Total Enrollment: 6

    University of Florida College of Medicine, Gainesville, Florida

    Whoever the "lucky" six are, they are forunate in that Deep Brain Stimulation, if I remember correctly, costs about $20,000 outside of clinical trials.

    Small Clinical Trial in Florida for treatment-resistant OCD
