DBS surgery in Israel has come in the forefront for intense Deep Brain Stimulation studies. At Hadassah University Hospital, Ein Karem, doctors are performing a drastic investigational technique on severely depressed patients. They felt that this that could offer them a ray of hope after years of being let down because of medicines that don’t work.
The doctors have figured out a revolutionary way, that is, to implant a device called the brain pacemaker, which keeps on sending electrodes into the patients' brains. The first hospital in the whole of Israel to employ this treatment is The Jerusalem hospital. Known as Deep Brain Stimulation, this was part of a global scientific trial being carried out, not just in Israel, but also in several European countries.
Scientists around the world have figured out how to use the Deep Brain Stimulator by having the brain mapped out. DBS surgery is used to reduce the power of various diseases, from obsessive-compulsive disorder to Parkinson's. Trials are being conducted to test the effects of this procedure on a wide variety of other disorders, such as schizophrenia, Tourette's syndrome, post-traumatic stress disorder, chronic pain, epilepsy, and even Alzheimer's.
There are trials being conducted that involves a new type of pacemaker for the brain, specifically designed to read brain movement in real time, as this breakthrough research will help further refine DBS surgery in Israel. The cost of a Deep Brain Stimulator worldwide are as follows. Price list is placed in ascending order.
