Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common condition. But, OCD in patients suffering from Turner’s syndrome is not of common occurrence. It is a neuropsychiatric phenomenon which is not studied in detail. Eating disorders, mood, and anxiety are some of the common symptoms seen in patients with Turner’s syndrome. Deep Brain Stimulation surgery is used in treating various brain-related disorder such as Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, and OCD. In this surgery, the abnormal impulses in the brain are controlled by the impulses generated through electrodes that are implanted on a certain part of the brain. DBS surgery also regulates the secretion of chemicals in the brain. Miss Chloe Diane Mii Tangaroa residing in Australia was suffering from OCD with Turner’s Syndrome. Read on to know how team MediGence helps her to go through DBS surgery with a positive outcome.

Patient Introduction and Medical Condition

Chloe underwent DBS Surgery in India

Patient Chloe Diane Mii Tangaroa was suffering from OCD with Turner’s syndrome. Her condition was progressive and become worse over the last year. Chole, despite her condition, is successfully carrying her responsibility as an administrative assistant for disability commission. Progression of her disease was very fast and her mother was worried about the future of their daughter. She feared that Ms. Chloe would not be able to leave her house and the quality of life would be significantly reduced. Even before the treatment, a chromosomal abnormality in Ms. Chloe does not allow her to make friends and socially interacting with people.

Worried with her daughter’s condition, her mother Miss Sharon contacted Team MediGence by filling inquiry form available on MediGence’s website. Team MediGence quickly contacted her. She required to have a Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) surgery for her daughter and asked the Team to arrange for the same.

Deep Brain Stimulation surgery in patients with Obsessive Compulsory Disorder is highly complex and only a few surgeons in India are able to do it with high precision and success. Dr. Aditya Gupta, of Artemis Hospital, is a pioneer in DBS surgery. DBS surgery was still in the trial phase in India. Miss Chloe’s family want to see her leading a healthy and happy life and this they require the surgery to be done as soon as possible.

Before their arrival to India, Team MediGence detailed the protocol required to be followed in India for DBS surgery. In India, opinion, approval, and authorization of two independent psychiatrists are required, for performing DBS surgery.

Treatment Decision

After receiving the detailed information from Team MediGence, the family of Miss Chloe decided to have DBS surgery in India under the supervision and care of Dr. Aditya Gupta. Prior to their arrival in India, appointment was taken from Dr. Aditya Gupta and Dr. Sumit Singh for a preliminary consultation. The family arrived in India on 6th May 2019, and post-consultation, both doctors agreed to take the case. It was not an easy task to take opinion and approval of two independent psychiatrists, but team MediGence was extremely dedicated to getting it done. With initial glitches, the team was finally successful.

Surgery and Outcome

Surgery was planned after getting the approval and was successfully done. Family of Miss Chloe was extremely happy with the ultimate precision through which surgery was done and the initial outcome of the surgery.

Miss Chloe is currently in India for her follow-up visits and also touring enjoying the cultural heritage of India. Team MediGence wishes a speedy recovery to Miss Chloe and prays that she should lead a happy life as desired by her family members.
