Deep Brain Stimulation in Manipal Hospitals Goa, Dona Paula : Cost & Doctors

Robotics, minimally invasive surgery, intraoperative MRI, stereotactic radiosurgery, computer-assisted brain surgery, and deep brain stimulation are all used to treat neurological conditions at Manipal Hospital. Deep Brain Stimulation is safe, viable, and recommended treatment option at Manipal Hospital for patients suffering from Parkinson's disease, essential tremors, dystonia, and other conditions. DBS involves implanting a battery-powered device known as a neurostimulator (similar to a pacemaker) beneath the upper chest skin. The neurostimulator stimulates the areas of the brain that control movement. This aids in the blocking of nerve signals that cause abnormal movements.

DBS surgery at Manipal Hospital is divided into two parts: brain surgery and chest surgery. The surgical team will first secure the patient's head on a special head frame before using neuroimaging (CT or brain MRI) to map the brain and pinpoint the precise location of the electrodes. Typically, the electrodes are placed while the patient is alert and awake. In the second part of the surgery, the surgeon will implant the part of the device that contains the batteries (pulse generator) under the skin in the patient's chest, near the collarbone. Dr. Audumbar Netalkar and Dr. Omkar Narayan Churi are Manipal Hospital's brain and spine specialists.
