What Is DBS?

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is a procedure where stimulating wires are implanted in specific brain structures by a neurosurgical team. These wires are routed under the skin and connected to a stimulator battery, which is placed in the chest or abdominal wall. The battery produces a continuous impulse to the brain providing a consistent therapy to alleviate symptoms.


DBS is utilised in a variety of conditions which cause disorders of human movement when satisfactory improvement is not achieved with oral medications.


There is strong evidence demonstrating efficacy of DBS in the treatment of tremor, dystonia, Tourette syndrome and Parkinson’s disease.


The Sydney DBS team has extensive experience in treatment of all of these conditions.
