Details

Deep brain Stimulation (DBS) is being increasingly carried out for several neurological disorders, the most common being Parkinson’s disease. This handbook on Deep brain Stimulation will serve as a quick reference manual for those who want to gain expertise on this advanced neurosurgical technique wherein neurologists, neurosurgeons and neurophysiologists play key roles. The indications, procedures, complications and scientific trials to substantiate the evidence for the use of DBS are dealt with under different headings by experts in the respective fields. This will serve more as a practical guide than a theoretical text book as it is written based on the hands on experience of the respective authors.
