Almost 20 Years of Experience Performing DBS Surgery
Together, the SydneyDBS team have performed over 600 Deep Brain Stimulation implantations over nearly 20 years, maintaining a low complication rate.
Our serious morbidity rate including stroke and haemorrhage is 0.3% and lifelong infection risk is 3%, which is lower than the vast majority of published series in the medical literature.
We take great care in our pre-operative work up of patients, focussing on developing a detailed understanding of each individuals symptoms and providing clear expectations to optimise clinical outcomes.
Ongoing care of our patients is provided by both SydneyDBS specialists and SydneyDBS trained Neurologists with whom we maintain close clinical collaborations.
Sydney DBS works with Parkinson’s NSW and the Shake It Up Australia Foundation (partnered with the internationally based Michael J Fox Foundation) to drive awareness about treatments, ongoing research, living with PD and device assisted therapies such as Deep Brain Stimulation.
Sydney DBS is proud of our affiliation with North Shore Private, Royal North Shore Hospitals and the Northside Clinic.
