OCD

OCD or Obsessive compulsive disorder is one of the most devastating brain disorder which can cripple the life of a person suffering from OCD.

Prof Shahzad Shams is the only neurosurgeon in Pakistan to offer DBS surgery for intractable OCD which is not responsive to medical therapy.

DBS stands for Deep Brain Stimulation which is a minor surgery done under local anaesthesia and patient is discharged next day. DBS patients have responded excellently world wide and manged to live a normal life afterwords.

Prof Shahzad Shams Coma Treatment with DBS

BEST NEUROSURGEON FOR COMA WITH DBS SURGERY

Patients developing Coma after Head Injury or Hypoxiemic brain injury have responded brilliantly to DBS Deep Brain Stimulation surgery in which external current is given to brain through external battery which brings these patients back into this world. DBS Deep Brain Stimulation provides the external current to brain to provide decrease in currrent which occurred due to damage to brain because of Head Injury or Hypoxemic brain damage secondary to CPR or Anaesthesia.

Essential Tremors

Prof Shahzad Shams has the answer to Essential tremors which if start to occur in a person can make their life miserable. These tremors occur in the hands when they are performing fine work like writing, eating, drinking, putting in golf, potting with cue etc, etc which becomes embarrasing, These tremors increase in group meetings and when patient is tense. They are common in elderly who are above 60 years of age. Unfortunately there is no medicine available to control these tremors.

Prof Shahzad performs DBS Deep Brain Stimulation surgery which makes these tremors to stop completely then and there in the operating theatre.

Patient is discharged within 24 hours of admission.

Dystonia

DYSTONIA

Prof Shahzad Shams has the answer to Dystonia which is abnormal spasmodic momemts of the body and it does not respond to any medical therapy. There are two following types:

CERVICAL DYSTONIA

It is common and DBS Deep Brain Stimulation completely cures this abnormal moment of neck to one side.

GENERALIZED DYSTONIA

It is also managed by DBS surgery and the results are best in Pediatric age patients. Both Primary and Secondary Dystonia are treated by DBS Surgery.

MEIG’S SYNDROME (OROMANDIBULAR AND FACIAL DYSTONIA)

It involves forceful contraction of Lips, Face, Jaw and tongue also called Oromandibular Dystonia.

DBS or Deep Brain Stimulation is the only and best treatment for Meig’s Syndrome.

TREATMENT: DBS DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION

Unfortunately there is no medicine available to control these abnormal movements.

Prof Shahzad performs DBS Deep Brain Stimulation surgery for Dystonia which makes these Dystonic moments to stop completely then and there in the operating theatre.

Patient is discharged within 24 hours of admission.

DBS Deep Brain Stimulation

FUNCTIONAL NEUROSURGERY

Functional Neurosurgery consists of procedures in which external stimulus is given to an organ of the body to improve its function which can be  like External battery to give current to improve function of Brain, Spine, Urinary Bladder and Vagus Nerve or External continous infusion pump of Baclofen by a Baclofen Pump.

DBS or Deep Brain Stimulation is done to improve Movement Disorders like Parkinson’s disease, Dystonia and Tremors.

OTHER NEUROMODULATION TECHNIQUES

Spinal cord Stimuation SCS for spinal cord disorders.

Vagal Nerve Stimulation or VNS for control of Epilepsy.

Stimulation of bladder to control urinary bladder dysfunction like urge incontinence and bladder contraction disorders.

Prof. Shahzad Shams worked as Head and Professor of Neurosurgery Department at Lahore General Hospital, LGH, Lahore, Pakistan and presently works as Chairman Department of Neurosurgery King Edward Medical University and Mayo Hospital, Lahore, Pakistan.

Lahore General Hospital is known for last 50 years for the treatment of movement disorders. Lahore General Hospital is the first Hospital in Pakistan where movement disorder surgery was performed by Prof Bashir Ahmad in December 1969.  It excels in all kinds of treatments required for diseases like Parkinson’s disease, Essential tremors and Dystonia. Prof Shahzad Shams is the best Neurosurgeon for the treatment of movement disorders and considered the best among the Doctors, Neuro physicians, Medical Specialists and General Physicians.

DBS SURGERY- DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION PROCEDURE

DBS surgery involves placing a thin metal electrode into one of several possible brain targets and attaching it to a computerizad pulse generator, which is implanted under the skin in the chest below the collar bone. All parts of the stimulator system are internal; there are no wirs coming out through the skin. A programming computer held next to the skin over the pulse generator is used to adjust the settings for optimal symptom contro

PALLIDOTOMY

Their  is a  part of the brain call led the Globus pallidus which becomes overactive in Parkinson’s disease. This overactivity acts like a brake and slows or diminishes bodily movement. Pallidotomy surgery permanently destroys the overactive globus pallidus to lessen the symptoms. This treatment can eliminate rigidity and significantly reduce tremor, bradykinesia, and balance problems. Pallidotomy can also enhance the effect of medication in those patients having advanced form of the disease.

TREATMENT FOR FOLLOWING DISEASES:

1. PARKINSON’S DISEASE

2. DYSTONIA

THALAMOTOMY

The abnormal brain activity that causes tremor is processed through the thalamus. Thalamotomy destroys part of the thalamus to block this abnormal activity from reaching the muscles and causing tremor. Thalamotomy is used only to control tremors.

1. TREMORS OF PARKINSON’S DISEASE
