Brain Stroke

About

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery in India is a surgical procedure to implant a pacemaker-like device that sends electrical signals to brain areas responsible for body movement. During the Deep Brain Stimulation Surgery in India, electrodes are placed deep in the brain and are connected to a stimulator/battery device.Similar to a heart pacemaker, a neurostimulator uses electric pulses to help regulate brain activity. DBS can help reduce the symptoms of tremor, slowness of movement, stiffness, and walking problems caused by movement disorders. It may be a treatment option for people who have Parkinson's disease, dystonia, or essential tremor and whose symptoms are not well controlled with medication.Successful DBS in India has allowed people to better manage their symptoms, reduce their medications, and improve their quality of life. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery in India has been very successful in treating cases of epilepsy, parkinson's disease.

A deep brain stimulator system has three parts that are implanted inside the body:

  • Neurostimulator  a programmable battery-powered pacemaker device that creates electric pulses. It is placed under the skin of the chest below the collarbone or in the abdomen.
  • Lead  a coated wire with a number of electrodes at the tip that deliver electric pulses to the brain tissue. It is placed inside the brain and connects to an extension wire through a small hole in the skull.
  • Extension  an insulated wire that connects the lead to the neurostimulator. It is placed under the skin and runs from scalp, behind the ear, down the neck and to the chest.

DBS can help treat many of the symptoms caused by the following movement disorders:

  • Parkinson's disease: tremor, rigidity and slowness of movement caused by the death of dopamine-producing nerve cells responsible for relaying messages that control body movement.
  • Essential tremor: involuntary rhythmic tremors of the hands and arms, occurring both at rest and during purposeful movement. Also may affect the head in a "no-no" motion.
  • Dystonia: involuntary movements and prolonged muscle contraction, resulting in twisting or writhing body motions, tremor, and abnormal posture. May involve the entire body, or only an isolated area. Spasms can often be suppressed by "sensory tricks," such as touching the face, eyebrows or hands.
