Questions and answers

How can you describe the impact of DBS surgery on patients?

Ali Zirh
34 years of experience

It would be appropriate to describe this as "turning back the clock of the disease." When we perform Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) surgery for a patient with a 10-years history of Parkinson's, it is possible to bring that patient back to the initial years of the disease.  We have seen patients who cannot live independently, turn in bed or eat without the help of others live independently after the surgery. Many of them can even see returning to their previous professions.

How effective is DBS for Parkinson's and tremors? What are the benefits of DBS for Parkinson's and Tremor?

Since DBS mimics the effect of high-dose medication, DBS surgery effectively stops Parkinson's patients' tremors and partially responds to the medication.

However, in patients whose tremor does not stop from the beginning despite a high dose of medication, with DBS focused on the tremor center in the brain, it is possible to stop both Parkinson's tremor and other tremors with a success rate of 85-90%.

What is the DBS surgery process?

Patients suitable for this surgery will be brought to the hospital and taken through the necessary preoperative evaluations. They will undergo DBS surgery on the second day, where the actual brain surgery part of the intervention is. The patients are awake, able to talk with us and communicate their experiences during the surgery. 

During this approximate 2.5-hour process, the medical team creates the physiological map of the brain using the Microelectrode Recording and Stimulation technique and by establishing cooperation with the patient. The surgeon places DBS electrodes by locating the brain cells responsible for the disease with an error margin of fewer than 80 microns. 

Afterward, within half an hour, when the patient is anesthetized, the surgeon places the neurostimulator in the chest area and connects it to the DSB electrodes with extension cables.  After the operation, the treating doctor provides neurostimulator programming, reduces and adjusts the patient's medications within 2-3 weeks of outpatient clinic control.

What does the success of DBS surgery depend on?

1. Proper patient selection

2. Placing DBS electrodes in the right place in the brain

3. Proper neurostimulator programming.

Items 1 and 3 require a highly educated and experienced movement disorders team. Item 2 depends on the advanced technology used and the experience of the neurosurgeon performing the surgery. Failure to define the precise location of those cells responsible for the disease will inevitably sacrifice the quality of life for the patients after surgery.
