Essential tremor is a movement disorder, most commonly affecting the hands, that makes  daily tasks like eating, writing or shaving incredibly challenging for an estimated 10 million Americans. 

Now, a new, non-invasive treatment called high-intensity focused ultrasound, or HiFu, is delivering life-changing results.

Dr. Justin Sporrer, director of functional neurosurgery at Miami Neuroscience Institute, joins  Dr. Jonathan Fialkow to explain why HiFu is a game-changer in the treatment of patients with essential tremor.
