  • Having suffered from Parkinson's Disease for two years, 60-year-old businessman lost his mobillity and speech.
  • In his attempt to walk he had to sit down on his knees after each step; most of the times he could talk at all.
  • At Jaslok Hospital, Mumbai, after a two day surgery, sexagenarian got back his speech.
  • Doctors at the hospital claim it to be one of the rare instances in which the procedure of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) has been able to completely bring back the abilities of speech in a patient.
  • According to director of neurosurgery, Dr. Paresh Doshi, amongst the 425 similar cases of Parkinson's Disease he has dealt with for the past two decades it is for the first time that from completely incoherent speech, the patient achieves the ability of communication immediately after surgery.
  • The procedure of DBS continued for four to five hours for two days that enabled him to sit upright and developed his speech.
