Deep brain stimulation
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a neurosurgical procedure that involves implanting a small device, similar to a pacemaker, into the brain to deliver electrical impulses to specific areas of the brain. It is commonly used to treat movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, and dystonia, as well as other neurological and psychiatric conditions. The electrical stimulation helps regulate the abnormal activity in the brain that causes the symptoms of these disorders, leading to improvements in motor function, mood, and quality of life. DBS is typically performed under local anesthesia and the patient is awake during the procedure to help the surgeon pinpoint the exact location for implantation.
