Surgery should be considered for patients with disabling essential tremor that is not adequately controlled with drug therapy.
The two proven surgical treatments are:
Thoracic Outlet Syndrome
It is possible that the main title of the report Thoracic Outlet Syndrome is not the name you expected. Please check the synonyms listing to find the alternate name(s) and disorder subdivision(s) covered by this report.

Patients who cannot undergo surgery include those who have medical conditions other than ET that make them poor surgical candidates and those with a significant loss of thinking ability.
Both procedures allow patients to potentially reduce their tremor medications.
