Types of Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Surgery

Different types of deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery target different parts of the brain. The best approach is determined by the patient’s symptoms, ability to tolerate the surgery, and risk of complications.

As leaders in DBS surgery, our team is skilled and equipped to perform:

  • Subthalamic DBS: One of the most effective treatments for patients with Parkinson’s disease in terms of the range of symptoms that can be alleviated and the ability to reduce the amount of medication patients need
  • Globus Pallidus DBS: A targeted approach for many patients with dystonias that may also be used as an alternative to subthalamic nucleus DBS in some patients with PD
  • Thalamic DBS: A preferred targeting method for patients with essential tremor that may also be able to treat other types of tremors
