His Brain Was on National TV

JANUARY 31, 2018

Greg Grindley was diagnosed with early onset Parkinson’s disease when he was just 40 years old. For the next ten years his tremors rapidly worsened, leaving him dependent on multiple medications and a cane just to get through each day. Watch as Greg describes how deep brain stimulation surgery at University Hospitals - broadcast live on the National Geographic Channel – enabled him to resume his life and return to the activities he loves.

University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center was formerly known as University Hospitals Case Medical Center. This video was filmed prior to the name change on September 9, 2016.
