Deep Brain Stimulation and Modulation: Empowering Transformation Through Precision

Welcome to APCCs neurosurgery website, where we are at the forefront of innovative treatments such as Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) and modulation—an approach that offers new hope for individuals with certain neurological conditions. Our team of neurosurgical experts is committed to providing comprehensive care, including DBS, to enhance quality of life and restore function.

Understanding Deep Brain Stimulation and Modulation: Deep Brain Stimulation involves the implantation of electrodes into specific areas of the brain to deliver controlled electrical pulses. This technique modulates abnormal brain activity, offering relief for conditions that may not respond to conventional treatments.

Expertise and Experience: Our neurosurgical team is comprised of specialists with advanced training in DBS techniques. We bring extensive experience to the table, ensuring precise electrode placement and optimal outcomes.

Conditions We Treat: DBS and modulation are considered for a range of neurological conditions, including:

  • Parkinson's Disease: Addressing motor symptoms like tremors, rigidity, and bradykinesia.
  • Essential Tremor: Reducing involuntary shaking and improving coordination.
  • Dystonia: Managing muscle contractions and abnormal postures.
  • Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD): Alleviating distressing obsessive thoughts and compulsive behavior.
  • Epilepsy: Modulating brain activity to prevent seizures.

    • Comprehensive Evaluation: Our approach begins with a thorough evaluation to ensure that DBS is appropriate for your condition. This may involve:

      • Neurological Assessment: Evaluating symptoms, medical history, and treatment response.
      • Imaging: Identifying target brain areas for electrode placement.
      • Neuropsychological Testing: Assessing cognitive function and emotional well-being.

        • Implantation and Programming: The DBS procedure involves two phases: implantation and programming.

          • Implantation: Surgically placing electrodes in precise brain areas and connecting them to batteries placed under the skin.
          • Programming: Adjusting stimulation parameters to achieve optimal symptom control. Programming is tailored to each patient's unique response and needs.

          Recovery and Follow-Up: After surgery, we provide comprehensive postoperative care, guiding you through the recovery process and programming adjustments. Regular follow-up appointments ensure ongoing symptom control and quality of life.

          Contact Us: If you or a loved one are seeking relief from the challenges posed by neurological conditions, our team is here for you. Reach out to determine whether your condition can be treated by DBS.
