Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a treatment for symptoms of Parkinson's disease, including tremors, stiffness, and trouble walking. Deep brain stimulation surgery 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.
DBS or Deep Brain Stimulation Surgery is very special surgery and needs special training. DBS Dr Jaspreet Singh Randhawa is a trained DBS Surgeon and one of the best neurosurgeon at Ivy Hospital, Mohali in Punjab. Dr Jaspreet prefers to perform it as a day care surgery and you will need to keep taking your usual dose of Parkinson's medicine after the surgery. Your device can't be programmed until the swelling in your brain goes down, which takes about 2 to 4 weeks. This treatment is reserved for people who aren't able to get control of their symptoms with medications. Deep brain stimulation isn't successful for everyone. There are a number of variables involved in the success of deep brain stimulation. It's important to talk with a neurosurgeon before surgery about what type of improvement you can expect for your condition.
Deep brain stimulation (DBS)is an established treatment for people with movement disorders, such as essential tremor, Parkinson's disease and dystonia, and psychiatric conditions, such as obsessive-compulsive disorder. It's also approved for use by the Food and Drug Administration to reduce seizures in difficult-to-treat epilepsy. The surgery is done by a neurosurgeon who is trained in performing this surgery. In some cases the patient is required to stay in hospital for 1 to 2 days. In the Deep Brain Stimulation Surgery the implant used is of two types, one with non rechargeable battery and other with a chargeable battery. The cost of the implant varies with the type of deep brain stimulation surgery implant opted for after discussing with the neurosurgeon in India.

The life of non rechargeable battery in the Deep Brain Stimulation FDA approved implant used in Punjab, India is 5 years after which it has to be replaced.
