Hi Dr Ashish,
Thank you for contacting Healthcare Magic.
Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a helpful treatment for Parkinson's disease (PD). It is indicated in certain specific situations such as tremor-predominant PD and drug-induced dyskinesia.
In Bangalore, you can meet either Dr Murali Srinivas (Neurologist at Manipal Hospital) or Dr Guruprasad (Neurologist at Columbia Asia hospital) to know more details about the procedure. Both the doctors are good neurologists with experience in DBS and I know them personally and academically.
Best wishes,
Dr Sudhir Kumar MD DM (Neurology)
Senior Consultant Neurologist
