Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) The deep brain stimulation is a treatment method which
tries to relieve the symptoms of the disease by giving electrical currents to
the specific areas of the brain that are responsible for the movement disorder
via thin electrodes inserted in the brain.
What is the
process of a deep brain stimulation operation?
The operation is done within 4 - 5 hours. It is done
in an operation room while the patient is awake, chatting with the patient and
getting help from them. Patients do not feel any pain during the operation
other than the one caused by a few local anesthesia injections.
the deep brain stimulation operations successful?
During the operation, we need to find the targeted
area of 2-3 mm in the brain and insert the electrodes of the neurostimulator in
without any mistake. Thanks to a technique called “microelectrode recording and
stimulation technique” it is possible to find the location of the cell, which
is responsible for the disease with an error margin that is less than 80
What does a
deep brain stimulation operation change in the patient’s life?
The benefit they provide can be summarized as
“rewinding the clock of the patient to their healthy life”. After the
operation, the patients get better strikingly fast and they can get back to
their almost normal life. Many patients who could not hold a fork, thread a
needle or even write, and need help from others to be able to live, are now
back to their normal daily lives, and a significant part of them can work
What are the
advantages of a deep brain stimulator?
DBS is a treatment method that can totally be
controlled, programmed and managed. If the patient is not satisfied or
experiences problems, it can be turned off, or completely removed.
