Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a surgical process used to treat various neurological problems, the most common of which are the disabling motor symptoms of Parkinson’s disease (PD), such as tremor, stiffness, slower movement, and difficulties walking.
Dr. Gurneet Singh Sawhney has a wealth of experience in performing advanced neurosurgeries and DBS surgery in Mumbai. For his proficiency in complex brain surgery and other neurosurgeries, he is regarded as one of the best neurosurgeon in India.
DBS is a modernized version of an old procedure. Small sections of the brain were terminated within the thalamus (globus pallidus) in the previous surgery. Now, small regions of the brain can no longer be terminated with DBS in Mumbai.
Dr. Sawhney programs the DBS system to provide the patient with the best symptom control possible. The programming can be changed if the symptoms change over time.

Frequently Asked Questions
Deep brain stimulation of the subthalamic nucleus has been linked to personality changes such as increased impulsivity and improvements in motor symptoms.
If you have “Parkinson’s plus” symptoms or don’t have a firm diagnosis of Parkinson’s, you are not suitable for DBS. Full-body MRI scans or particular head and chest MRI scans are required. The internal pulse generator, often known as the stimulator or IPG, cannot be operated.
DBS does not cause lasting harm to any portion of the brain, unlike some other surgical alternatives. As the person’s sickness progresses or their response to treatments varies, the electrical stimulation can be adjusted and reversed.
Affected patients may have significant short-term memory, working memory, episodic memory, and semantic memory problems due to mild, moderate, or severe injuries.
