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.

FAQ about Deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery

How to choose the best DBS hospital?

When you consider several options for providing the brain stimulation, have in mind the following factors:

  • The doctor’s experience. The qualification is the key factor of successful brain surgery outcome. It requires special skills and lots of experience. Even if deep brain stimulation has nothing to do with intervention in the brain, its effect depends on the accuracy of pacemaker electrodes placing. If electrical signals don’t reach the targeted area, a patient will not relieve the symptoms. We highly recommend to learn the doctor’s CV and figure out how many people he treated with DBS. Read his patient reviews, contact them if possible to get additional information firsthand, watch videos with doctor’s patients before and after the procedure.
  • Certifications. Best DBS clinics have certificates and awards ensuring a patient receives care according to the international guidelines. Among them are Joint Commission International (JCI), European Foundation for Quality Management (EFQM), etc.
  • The hospital equipment. The modern equipment gives a neurosurgeon a better picture of the patient’s brain, so an expert puts electrodes faster and more accurate. Some technologies as Neuromate robot allows minimizing traumatic effect for the head.
  • The clinic location. Patients with Parkinson’s disease and dystonia at different stages have different conditions and diverse symptoms — and not all of them can have long-time flights. In this case, it’s better to look upon neighboring countries.

Where can I get the surgery?

The ranking represents medical centers in Turkey, India, Spain, Israel, South Korea, Germany, and the Czech Republic. All of them have international certificates, trained neurosurgeons, and advanced technologies. The prices for DBS in these hospitals differ due to price policy within the country, hospital awareness, and other factors.

Let’s gain insight top 3 countries with DBS clinics.

Turkey

For the last decade, Turkey has become a new healthcare brand. By the end of 2019, the country will have hosted 1M international patients.

I’is a top choice due to quality-price ratio. This correlation is explained by governmental supervision of prices in the hospitals and experienced professionals who have vast experience in DBS for Parkinson’s, essential tremor, dystonia, and Tourette syndrome.

Patients from the Gulf and Western European countries most often come to Turkey for neurosurgery.

India

If you are looking for affordable prices and want to be sure of the procedure quality, India is the choice. Indian hospitals report that they offer the lowest prices, some of which take a tenth part of the US prices for the same neurosurgical procedures, including DBS.

Indian neurosurgeons are trained overseas and thus are skillful enough to provide the most complex surgeries.

Patients from the Middle East (Oman), African countries (Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania), Asia (Bangladesh, Bhutan) visit Indian DBS specialists for treatment of Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, OCD, depression, dystonia.

Spain

WHO ranks the Spanish healthcare system the 7th in the world. The country spends around 10% of its GDP on medicine development. Thus, hospitals have the newest equipment possible. Many centers provide clinical trials. In Spain, deep brain stimulation is carried out for Parkinson’s, essential tremor, and other movement disorders, dystonia, epilepsy, and Tourette syndrome. Prices are higher than in Turkey and India.

Patients from France, Germany, the UK, and the Netherlands come here for treatments.
