Deep Brain Stimulation

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a neurosurgical procedure which involves implanting electrodes within the brain to stimulate neural circuits to treat abnormal movements such as tremor, dyskinesia, and on/off fluctuations which occur in Parkinson’s disease (PD) when medical therapy is not effective or causes disabling side effects.

Although not a cure, deep brain stimulation can drastically improve symptoms and provide relief for some sufferers of movement disorders. The procedure is considered minimally invasive and is well established, being offered in Adelaide and South Australia for over 10 years.

Deep brain stimulation is one of Dr Zacast’s clinical neurosurgical interests; he has researched its implementation extensively and been published in peer-reviewed journals on the topic. He provides clinical consultation and performs the procedure in suitable patients from Calvary Adelaide Hospital.
