Deep Brain Stimulation Surgery Cost In Malaysia

Whatsapp Chat Chat

Deep brain stimulation, or DBS, is a surgical method of treating a particular type of Parkinson's disease. If a patient has Parkinson's disease, he might have aggravated symptoms like shaking, tremors, rigidity, and loss of movement control.

These symptoms make a person dependent on simple daily routine things. That's why it needs interventional treatment.

In the Deep brain stimulation technique, a small pacemaker device is installed in the chest area, which triggers the area of the brain which has control over the body.

These signals block some nerve conduction, which is unknowingly being passed to the organs.

This way, symptoms mainly subside.

The procedure is done in two steps. In the first step, thin wires or electrodes are placed, and in the second step, a pacemaker is installed.
