Awake Deep Brain Stimulation


Awake deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a medical treatment involving the implantation of electrodes into specific areas of the brain while the patient is awake. This procedure is used to modulate abnormal brain activity in conditions such as Parkinson's disease, essential tremor, and dystonia. The patient's awake state allows for real-time feedback and optimal electrode placement to achieve the best possible therapeutic outcomes.
