Apollo Hospitals, Chennai has successfully used advanced Brain Sensing technology in Deep Brain Stimulation on patients suffering with Parkinson’s disease. Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS), is a neurosurgical procedure that involves implanting electrodes deep inside the brain to improve symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. The use of advanced brain sensing technologies helps in individualized monitoring that maximizes therapeutic outcome. The advanced movement disorders team at Apollo Hospitals have performed five DBS surgeries in last month, that included four patients of Parkinson’s disease and one with dystonia. All the patients have recovered well with good improvement in their symptoms.

Ms. Preetha Reddy, Vice Chairperson, Apollo Hospitals Group said, “At Apollo Hospitals, we have been performing DBS surgery since 14 years now. Well-established as a therapy for patients diagnosed with advanced Parkinson’s disease, the procedure is now used for many other neurological indications with good success. With one of the most experienced teams in South India backed by the latest medical technology, we are sure that we will be able to help many Indian patients with Parkinson’s and other neurological disorders to regain their quality of life.
