Limited treatments for conditions like Parkinson's, epilepsy, Alzheimer's, and cluster headaches have left patients searching for hope. Fortunately, Deep Brain Stimulation, a surgical method, emerges as a promising solution.

While we've discussed global approaches to Parkinson's treatment previously, this article focuses on Turkey's notable success in treating Parkinson's and various diseases using Deep Brain Stimulation.

Explore the success rates and effects of deep brain stimulation surgery in Turkey, highlighting the leading practitioners and their achievements in performing this impactful procedure.

What is deep brain stimulation?

Deep brain stimulation is a surgery involving the direct implantation of a device into different parts of the brain to facilitate normal cell function. This procedure is commonly employed to treat conditions like Parkinson's disease and epilepsy.

How does deep brain stimulation work?

Performing deep brain stimulation surgery involves two stages. 

First, under local anesthesia, two electrodes are carefully placed in specific areas of the brain that have been identified beforehand. During this stage, the patient remains awake. Once the electrodes are in position, the patient is engaged in restful conversation to ensure proper placement, and then the electrodes are securely fixed.

In the second stage, the battery is positioned behind the collarbone for patient comfort, requiring general anesthesia. The battery is then connected to the electrodes beneath the skin. Following this, adjustments to both the battery and medication are made to address and alleviate the patient's concerns and complaints.

Who is a candidate for deep brain stimulation? 

Deep brain stimulation is a specific treatment method, not applicable to everyone or every condition. It is an option for certain conditions, such as:

  • Dystonia

  • Epilepsy

  • Essential Tremor

  • Obsessive-compulsive Disorder

  • Parkinson's Disease

If individuals do not achieve desired outcomes with these conditions or if medications prove ineffective due to side effects, and there is no consistent improvement in their quality of life, surgical options may be explored. However, the decision for surgery should be made by specialists in neurology and neurosurgery.

How is rehabilitation after deep brain stimulation?

After Deep Brain Stimulation surgery, you'll be back on your feet in just 3-4 days. During this short period, your surgical areas heal, and outpatient clinic visits may be needed for a few weeks.

Following recovery, your doctor fine-tunes the neurostimulation device using a programmer in about 5 visits to a neurologist. To ensure successful rehabilitation, avoid alcohol for at least 2-3 weeks.

Results are quick: on the first day post-surgery, limb tremors decrease or vanish, restoring speech and coordination. Within days, sleep and overall well-being bounce back to normal.

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) in Turkey

Deep Brain Stimulation, a long-established procedure in Turkey, consistently yields high success rates. Compared to other countries, the efficacy of this treatment in Turkey is notably superior.

Turkey's clinics boast top-tier centers where renowned neurosurgeons expertly conduct deep brain stimulation. Collaborating with the world's best doctors in the field, these clinics ensure excellence in the DBS procedure.

Deep brain stimulation costs differ by location. In the United States, the surgery, covering the implanted device, hospital fees, and anesthesia, may range from $70,000 to $100,000. Turkey offers this procedure at a 50-60% lower cost compared to other countries, making it an attractive choice for deep brain stimulation.

Hence, for individuals seeking Deep Brain Stimulation, we strongly advise considering treatment in Turkey due to its proven track record of success.
