Deep Brain Simulation (DBS) Surgery
Why DBS is needed?
Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is a surgical procedure employed to treat patients with movement disorders such as essential tremor, Parkinson's disease, and dystonia. Additionally, it can be utilized to manage symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder and epilepsy.
When it comes to managing the motor symptoms of Parkinson's disease (PD), deep brain stimulation (DBS) targeting the subthalamic nucleus (STN) has emerged as a highly effective treatment. Recent studies have further demonstrated that bilateral STN-DBS surpasses the benefits of the best medical therapy, leading to significant improvements in quality of life (QoL).
Research findings consistently indicate that deep brain stimulation is remarkably successful in managing the symptoms of Parkinson's disease. Although a cure for Parkinson's is yet to be discovered, DBS can greatly improve the overall lifestyle of patients for a duration of approximately 10 to 15 years, depending on individual conditions. When patients are appropriately selected, DBS is considered a safe and effective treatment option. While there are potential risks and side effects associated with the procedure, they are typically mild and reversible in nature.

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a surgical therapy for Parkinson's disease (PD) that targets movement symptoms and medication side effects. DBS may also improve non-motor symptoms like sleep, pain, and urinary urgency. However, it does not cure or stop disease progression. Artemis Hospital has extensive experience in DBS procedures.
