Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) involves implanting electrodes within certain areas of your brain. These electrodes produce electrical impulses that regulate abnormal impulses. Or the electrical impulses can affect certain cells and chemicals within the brain.
The amount of stimulation in Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is controlled by a pacemaker-like device placed under the skin in your upper chest. A wire that travels under your skin connects this device to the electrodes in your brain.
Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is a now a proven effective treatment for these neurological conditions:
Parkinson’s disease Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat Parkinson’s disease in 2002 and is now a standard treatment for this conditionFor these patients, Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) can offer steady symptom control for 24 hours per day, to provide better quality of life.
Essential Tremor When patients have inadequate response to medication, Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is an option to effectively treat essential tremor. Patients who undergo Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) can experience approximately 80 percent improvement in hand tremor.
Dystonia Dystonia is a condition in which patients experience involuntary muscle contractions that force parts of the body into abnormal postures. DBS has been FDA approved for this condition under what is known as the Humanitarian Device Exemption (HDE.)
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) has been approved by the FDA under the Humanitarian Device Exemption (HDE) for the treatment of obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD.)
More than 5000 DBS procedures have been successfully done at our affiliated world class hospitals in India in last few years and that too a fraction of the cost elsewhere in the world using the same FDA approved devices. The results are extremely promising with more than 85% patients of Parkinson’s disease obtaining significant relief in rigidity, bradykinesia and resting tremors. There is an overall marked improvement in quality of life, and reduction in medication requirement. There is a minimal 2% risk of complications such as bleeding inside the brain or infection of the implanted material
"Battling with Parkinson’s for the past few years had been very difficult for me and my family both financially and emotionally. We knew that I needed to undergo advanced surgery. And so began our search for a reliable and affordable medical tourism website. We were looking for hospitals that would give us the best possible medical attention, best team of surgeons and nurses, physiotherapists and overall hospital care.
All the medical attention that I received has exceeded our expectations. The Surgical team here is not only highly skilled,but also very supportive. They instilled confidence in us and kept our spirits high with their sense of humour.
I am already feeling better and can feel the difference post DBS Surgeryand look forward to a much better quality of life."
