Deep Brain Stimulation
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a surgical treatment that implants a brain pacemaker device that sends electrical impulses to specific parts of the brain. This treatment provides therapeutic benefits for movement and affective disorders that have been otherwise resistant to treatment, such as chronic pain, Parkinson’s disease and tremor.
At the Neurocritical Care Center, we provide expert neurocritical care for patients undergoing DBS surgical treatment via our neurosurgical intensive care unit.
