Deep brain stimulation is a surgical procedure most commonly used to address symptoms of patients diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease that have not been adequately alleviated by medications. Here, an implanted electrode that connects to a neurostimulator device is precisely placed within the brain with the assistance of advanced imaging including MRI and CT scans. This electrode can provide electrical stimulation to specific parts of the brain in order to interfere with the transmission of abnormal nerve signals. As a result, some of the neurological symptoms associated with Parkinson’s disease – including tremors and mobility problems – may be alleviated. The neurostimulator itself is placed under the skin near the collarbone, lower chest or abdomen and connected to the electrode in the brain via a subcutaneous, insulated wire.
