All analyzes and the conclusion of the doctor at my request translated into Russian. The only thing that did not like this doctor coordinator was my analysis and the conclusion that I sent in 2 weeks should have been translated and provided to the blade Medipol this was not! As a result, this provided a lot of difficulties. I had to take additional tests, which are not cheap. I advise, if you go abroad all the previous analyzes and conclusions of the doctor to translate yourself and have with you.

The patient was treated of bladder cancer

The clinic, in the category "like - do not like", I can not evaluate. Meeting at the airport with an interpreter and transfer to the clinic - standard. Accommodation in the guest house, before the operation, leaves much to be desired. But, who is familiar with India, I do not think for special comfort and does not count, otherwise - to Germany. Immediately the next morning, without delay and delay, a primary appointment with doctors and diagnosis. Prices for a visit from doctors, examinations and tests are very reasonable, commensurate with Moscow or, even lower. Communication with doctors through an interpreter is somewhat difficult, but quite informative and understandable. Knowledge of English will remove all embarrassment, but in general - not critical. The attitude of doctors to the examination and refinement of the diagnosis is "meticulous". After five days - a summary and proposal for a treatment program. Hospitalization, surgery, 3 days in the intensive care unit and postoperative placement in a two-bed room (together with an attendant) for 12 days. And an extract. The level of training, skill and attitude of doctors, from my "ambitious" point of view of the accompanying person, is beyond praise !!! About the surgeon who performed the operation - DR. MURUGANANDHAM K, I want to say that he has "golden hands and heart" !!! The attitude of the average medical personnel, despite the language difficulties, is very friendly. In the intensive care unit was invited immediately after the operation and "woke up" the patient with me. Opening his eyes and seeing his native face after anesthesia - a person "comes alive"! Postoperative treatment and care in the ward are very worthy. Having repeated his own experience in hospitalization, I can not even compare. The account is not in our favor. In fact, treatment in the clinic saved life! This is especially evident now, a year after the treatment. A year ago, options were considered: Germany, Israel and India. In terms of price-quality ratio and recall of acquaintances have chosen treatment in India. And they were not mistaken. The clinic was selected by specialists of the site en.bookimed.com. They also provided a correlation and communication with the clinic. Huge thanks to them !!!

The equipment is good, modern. Doctors and attendants are attentive and highly qualified. I passed a survey course and a number of specialist consultations. At the time when I was there, I was advised not to rush into the operation, as the state of health is at the stage of improvement. If they were interested in pumping money from me, then they would recommend urgently to do it, which indicates their objectivity. The only problem with finding there was an unusual food for me. But this is someone who, like someone who loves spicy, peppery and a lot of seasonings.

What is Deep Brain Stimulation?

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is neurosurgical procedure aimed at fast and effective treatment of neurological disordersas:
  • Parkinson’s disease
  • essential tremor
  • dystonia
  • epilepsy
  • obsessive-compulsive disorder
  • Tourette syndrome
  • depression.

Nowadays the DBS procedure is the most efficient treatment method for Parkinson’s disease.

DBS system consists of three leading components: the leading wire (electrode), extender and brain stimulator. All the components, anesthesia, blood products, and other consumables are included into the Deep Brain Stimulation procedure cost.
Thin electrodes are inserted into the brain through small orifice with following deep structures stimulation by means of brain stimulator. The device is fixed under the skin in the chest area. The electrodes are connected to the stimulator by extension cord, which is held under the skin.

Deep Brain Stimulation system

Electrodes and brain pacemaker connection scheme

Clinics specialized in neurosurgery and Deep Brain Stimulation provide the operation with 100% accuracy and effectiveness.

Deep Brain Stimulation FDA approval

Deep Brain Stimulation surgery is approved by American Food and Drug Administration (FDA)*:

  • in 1997 - for Parkinson's disease and essential tremor treatment
  • in 2003 - for dystonia treatment
  • in 2009 - for OCD
  • in 2016 - for the earlier stages of Parkinson's
  • in 2016 - for dystonia in pediatric patients.

*FDA responses for protecting public health and ensures the principles of safety and security of medical devices, drugs and products.

DBS success rate

Deep Brain Stimulation success rate, risks

Indications and contraindications for DBS surgery

Indications for DBS procedure (on the example of Parkinson’s disease):

  • Medications are non-effective;
  • Severe tremor and motor disturbance;
  • Painful dystonia;
  • Allergy or strong side effects after administration of medications.

There are no severe contraindications for DBS providing, however some relative ones could make the surgery or preparation for surgery more difficult, including:

  • patient is older than 75;
  • simultaneous thermoradiotherapy;
  • immunological suppression;
  • brain atrophy;
  • some psychological disorders, mental disability.

Preparation for DBS surgery procedure

Before DBS operation providing, a patient should undergo the following diagnostics:

  • examination by neurologist/neurosurgeon;
  • complete blood count;
  • ECG;
  • electromyography;
  • EEG;
  • MRI.

During the examination, the doctor clarifies whether patient has any allergic reaction on medications and anesthesia.

  • In the week leading up to the surgery, a patient is forbidden to take any anti-inflammatory agents.
  • Moreover, a patient is forbidden to smoke and take alcohol 1 week to and 2 weeks after the surgery, as this could cause bleeding. It’s also prohibited to eat and take any medications right before the surgery.
  • Patients should come to the hospital 2 hours before the surgery to finish with all written arrangements and be briefed on anesthesia effect and possible risks.

Process of the DBS operation

Deep Brain Stimulation surgery for Parkinson’s takes from 5 to 7 hours.

The operation is carried out by the team of at least 5 specialists: neurosurgeon, anesthesiologist, radiation therapist, neurologist, psychiatrist, who control functional abilities of the brain for maximum accurate impact on the zone of stimulation.

Stage 1. At the time of the operation a patient is under local anaesthesia, but remains awake. This is a mandatory requirement, as far as he/she is asked to move the extremities, fingers, eyes, or to say anything - to check and make sure electrodes do not stimulate off-target brain areas. All the impulses - firstly from the brain into the recorded device, and then vice versa - are transferred as structural information into the monitor. Data are processed in real time, which helps to adjust the device simultaneously. The orifice is closed with lead, surgery area is stitched.

Stage 2. After the electrodes adjustment, the temporary device is changed into constant brain stimulator.

DBS movement

When a patient is moving his hand, the doctor is adjusting the brain stimulator parameters

During DBS surgery the brain feels no pain, so a patient doesn’t feel any discomfort.

What happens after the surgery?

Patient feels the improvement in first hours after the surgery performing. The trembling in extremities disappears, movement coordination and speech articulation are renewed. Few days after the surgery sleeping and general health condition become better, pain is gone.

Patient after DBS

After the DBS surgery a patient with Parkinson’s disease is easily repeating the moves of the neurologist

Patient stays in the hospital for a week to adjust all the settings of the temporary device, afterwards the constant device is put into the chest or the abdomen of a patient.

Every 3 weeks after the procedure a patient is recommended to appoint neurologist to check the settings of the brain stimulator. 3-4 visits are required in general.

After the final neurostimulator programming, patient can control the parameters by him/herself, choosing the pre-installed regimes. As a rule, brain stimulator works 24h. There are different types of the neurostimulator devices: with battery and accumulator. Accumulator charge is 12-14 days, the total charge cycle is 1-2h.

Cell phones, beepers, microwave ovens, electromagnetic sensors do not affect brain stimulator.

Deep brain stimulator

Brain pacemaker is a small and sealed device containing a battery and electronics. It is placed into the patient’s chest or the abdomen. Its size is not bigger than heart pacemaker. DBS battery in general lasts 3-5 years. However, the service life depends on the settings and may be 1.5 and 9 years as well.

The deep brain stimulator can be rechargeable and non-rechargeable. This characteristic of DBS battery affects brain pacemaker cost and deep brain stimulation surgery cost correspondingly.

A treating doctor will turn on the pacemaker with a wireless device (clinician programmer) and set up the programming sessions individual for the patient's symptoms relieving with minimum side effects. The procedure of setting can take a couple of hours.

Additional facts on brain pacemaker:

  • DBS stimulator activates the metal detector at the airport. All you need to do - show your card about the brain stimulator.
  • A person can have simultaneously neurostimulator and a cardiac pacemaker.
  • Neurostimulator should be on at any time, even when a patient goes to sleep.

Deep Brain Stimulation reviews

I made the decision of DBS providing by myself. My family gave me a support. The scariest thing for me was to become bedridden for the rest of my life. The surgery lasted for 7 hours and I remember everything, especially when they said they found the spot and everything would be great.

I married last year, now I have a child. It gave a second chance at life.

Jeff, the patient with dystonia from the USA

I first found out my tremor in the gym. I was shocked as I was so young. I woke up one day and realized I couldn't do it any more. The disease takes from you little by little who you are. I got tired very easily, I became slower. The doses of medications became higher and higher. I couldn't drive any more. And it became worse with time. DBS therapy changed me. It's unbelievable experience.
Thank God I live in a time for this kind of technology.

Kasandra, the patient with Parkinson’s disease from Italy

Deep Brain Stimulation - FAQs

  • Does DBS mean craniotomy?

No, all the manipulations are made through small orifices (the size of the orifice depends on the neurostimulator device, qualification and experience of neurosurgeon).

  • Is the surgery provided under local or general anesthesia?

The first stage - electrodes insertion - of the surgery is provided under local anesthesia. The second - constant stimulator putting is performed under general anesthesia.

  • What complications could appear during and after the surgery?

There are some possible complication that could arise during and after the Deep Brain Stimulation procedure: brain hemorrhage, infection, reaction to anesthesia. However, these conditions are rare and make out less than 1%.

  • What is the prognosis after DBS?

Most of the patients still need to take medications after DBS procedure, however in much smaller quantity which significantly lowers the medication side effects (incl. dyskinesis - notwilled movement, caused by longstanding medication taking). More than 70% of people feel a compelling improvement of tremor, movement slowness, rigidity, walking and balance problems as well.

  • What to do if battery of a deep brain stimulator runs out?

Neurostimulator is replaced surgically, leads and extensions of the system are stayed in place.

  • Do I need DBS operation on one side or both sides of the brain?

Deep Brain Surgery operation on one side is required to help symptoms on the opposite side of the body. Deep Brain Surgery procedure on two sides is recommended to provide improvement in motor function, especially if a patient has significant symptoms on both sides of the body.
In many clinics doctors firstly implant DBS lead on one side, adjust the setting and in a follow-up measure whether a patient needs a second DBS lead or not.

  • Do I need to take medications after DBS procedure?

DBS reduces total medication dose by 30-50% and spread the intervals, but does not substitute medication therapy.

  • Can DBS not work?

This option is possible and can happen because of improper patient selection, problems during the surgery, problems with the programming, disease progression. To avoid unnecessary risks, it's important to choose a center with experienced in DBS providing team.

TED Talk on DBS procedure

DBS research

For the mid 2017 Deep Brain Stimulation procedure has been a subject of various studies in terms of using the procedure to treat other diseases and mental conditions.

DBS operation has been considering as a method for Alzheimer's patients. Early studies have shown positive results, still some ethical issues remain. Research team of University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine is working on the solutions.

In American National Institute of Neurological Disease and Stroke and Institute of Mental Health the scientists have been investigating nonivasive DBS method - placing the electrodes on the scalp and not in the brain. The method was tested on mice and has been expecting a new stage of the study.

Have told, how the process of the organization of treatment operates. In 3 days I received a call from the clinic. A week later, there was a first consultation with a doctor mammologist Drome. The total price for all came out 5500 dollars. All the diagnostics took 3 days. Then another 5 days, I was waiting for the results of the biopsy. As a result, there was another meeting where the diagnosis was confirmed. But now I know exactly what and how to treat me! But I have an initial stage and no metastases. There is hope for a cure.

The patient was treated of breast cancer

In Moscow, local doctors tormented me for two months! Only a puncture (not a biopsy) 2 times took! And with the assumption of "breast cancer" was sent to an operation to remove the entire breast ("so reliable"). After two months of torment, I decided to go to Israel. I found the clinic Rambam. Have made a biopsy and diagnostics. They decided that at my stage it makes no sense to remove the entire chest. We decided to remove only one lymph node. So the breast will be saved !!!

The patient was treated of parkinson"s disease

I learned about the clinic from my friend, who was treating epilepsy there with her son five years ago, after a single attack in the clinic. The child returned to normal life. I went to the clinic with a diagnosis of my son's parkinson. We conducted a checkup at the clinic to confirm the diagnosis. In the shortest time - 5 days of inpatient stay, we had a complete clinical and laboratory study, necessary for diagnosis and treatment. Yes, unfortunately, for today this disease is indistinguishable, but it is possible to improve the quality of life with the help of correctly selected therapy. We were offered treatment with drugs, which I, as a doctor, did not even hear in Russia. Ochenb was impressed by the organization of work in the clinic: quickly, clearly and without unnecessary words. I was placed with my son in one ward, we advise him. department, professor. It should be noted that all the research conducted in the clinic, meet all world standards (this I can evaluate, again, as a doctor).

The patient was treated of breast cancer

I am very happy with the treatment I've so far received at Bumrungrad International Hospital. Beginning last year, I've made three separate visits for treatment at the hospital. The staff are extremely professional and efficient using very modern equipment. The cost of treatment is competitive. I would strongly recommend it to other people looking for medical care.

The patient was treated of lung cancer

I was extremely satisfied with everything that happened to me at this wonderful hospital. I don't think that there is a hospital in Asia which can compare with this one. From the doctors to the nurses and all other personell in this hospital ALL are competent, very polite and friendly - the only small criticism that I have is that unfortunately many don't speak English very well, that's a great shame.

The patient was treated of liver cancer

In 2013, we came to Seoul for treatment in the Samsun clinic with a father who was diagnosed with "Education in the liver, a size 5.5 by 5 mm" in Russia. In the Korean clinic, the father underwent a complete examination in 2 days, all in one place, without queue, by appointment and time: CT, MRI, PET, FGDS and colonoscopy with sleeping pills, biopsy of education, oncomarkers, ECG, X-ray.

After that he was diagnosed: "Hepatocellular carcinoma without metastases." The father was touched by the caring and careful attitude of the medical staff during the procedures, while everyone was clearly engaged in his own business. With such tumor sizes and with such localization (in the center), usually the surgical method is not shown, radioablation also does not fit, only chemotherapy, to which the tumor is not sensitive. The prognosis was pessimistic, the father's life time was estimated at 2-3 months. But at the consultation of a radiologist, chemotherapist and surgeons, it was decided to carry out the operation, since it was the only chance to survive the patient. They warned his father about the high risk, the technical difficulties of the operation due to the localization and size of the tumor. Father, of course, was in shock, he could not believe that he had a malignant tumor, and that everything was so serious. After all, he did not feel this tumor: he had no pain anywhere, his appetite was normal, he did not lose weight, there was only a small weakness, which he wrote off for age (70 years). This is the cunning of cancer - no symptoms! Only an annual preventive examination from the top to the heel can reveal the cancer at an early stage. We agreed to an operation. Operated by Dr. Kim. The operation lasted 6 hours.

Everything went well. Six days after the operation, we flew home. What amazed me about in Korea?

When I saw how the healthcare system works in Korea, I immediately relaxed, and I had full confidence in doctors and medical personnel. Everyone clearly did his job. For one nurse 2 patients, she practically did not leave them day and night. I did not have to take care of my father, everything was done by medical staff.

It was unusual that relatives were twice a day run to patients in intensive care, and without any shoe covers and masks. But the most amazing thing is that on the second day after such a difficult operation, my father walked around the corridor all day long!

Has noted kindness of Koreans, modesty, patience, diligence, the valid relation to the doctor. The doctor said once and everything, no one argues, does not ask again, does not follow him, if there are questions - sign up for a reception and wait. A very clear organization of working time and subordination, and hence culture.

I want to thank Dr. Kim again for his golden hands, the doctor who led the first reception, a very intelligent, literate and sincere person. All this time we had a Russian coordinator next to us, who translated, recorded for research, took a doctor, solved our everyday problems, and most importantly - morally supported, all 6 hours while the operation was near me. My father and I are grateful for her professionalism and excellent human qualities. All the issues solved quickly, clearly, without fuss.

The patient was treated of thoracic aortic aneurysm

October 5, 2011 my son (2 years), made an endovascular operation to close the interatrial defect (11mm). We still can not believe that we had an operation. Many times re-read the topic on the forum about invasive operations and dreamed that my son, you can close the defect in this way. Unfortunately, in Kazakhstan, we have not reached the age of 15 kg. weight such closures do not, only by the open method. Yes, and child cardiac surgery is just beginning to develop. All parents, if possible, take the children to Russia, Germany, South Korea, Israel. So I began to collect information about the clinics, where it is better to do the operation. By a fluke we got to Samsung. I'm not sure how many quarters this hospital occupies, but it's huge, it feels like it's in the forest, although it's located in the heart of Seoul. In advance, I apologize for the pun in the writings, I will certainly write in detail about our stay in the clinic. Now, I just want to say thanks to our endovascular surgeon Kang I Sok, the entire 9W pediatric department and the department for working with Russian-speaking patients Sonia, Lisa and Mr. Chu. For their personal involvement in the recovery of my little son. Especially the interpreter Sone who met us at the airport, accompanied at the examinations, when the operation was supported me morally and in general became my native person. Sonia did not just fulfill her duties, but she really sympathized. We flew home on October 14, I look anxiously at my son's leg (more precisely, I constantly look at her), but I see nothing there. No bruise, no scars, if I had not seen his leg right after the operation, you might think that he was not given a puncture. Lord, is this really the modern high tech technology. For all the stay in the clinic, he practically did not cry, except for the time when it was impossible to eat 6 hours before the operation (from 4.30 am to 11 am), about which he at that time sucks his breast, and when he was not given mother's milk, he hysterically raised , but this one, he could not be reassured by the whole department. How I transferred all this, do not describe in words.
I want to note the high professionalism of the sisters, how they quickly and painlessly install catheters, take blood, how they change the adhesive plasters on these catheters, wipe the puncture site with special napkins, massage the brush and fingers from sagging! Find an approach to every child. Even when the son did not want to drink medicine, and kicked! The nurse only smiled, and on my slap to my son for the spilled medicine said Dont steal, zisis baby. Type is a child, he can do anything! In Korea, an interesting mentality: the old and the children are the highest caste, the old people should all bow down, almost everything is allowed to children!
The treatment was at the highest level. So everything is organized and computerized. When you get to the department, a paper bracelet is put on the pen on the handle, on which there is all the information about the child and the treatment prescribed. When you go to another examination, the doctor already knows who will come and what examination to do. While doing the examination, the child watches cartoons, after examinations, we walk in the garden on a special baby carriage with a tripod, where all sorts of flashing sensors and droppers hang. However, it was difficult to put a son in the carriage after the operation, he runs like a battery, and I followed him like a second battery, just a dropper at the speed We were lying on the 9th floor. In the same sector, if you go down to floor B1 there are several restaurants, grocery (like a super market), flower shops, a shop where you can buy everything from diapers to a travel bag, souvenir shops, a bank, a pharmacy. We did not buy food, because they were fed patients with a choice of European or Korean cuisine 3 times a day. Order from the menu. Food is carried by a special machine. About her write separately
I want to tell all parents whose children have heart surgery, do not despair, find a good clinic, trust the surgeon, and get the best treatment.
