OCD Treatment with DBS Surgery Prof Shahzad Shams

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 Obsessive compulsive disease 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 is one of the Pioneers of DBS Deep Brain Stimulation surgery for OCD Obsessive compulsive disease in Pakistan and is referred cases from abroad also. He is the first in Pakistan to start DBS surgery in the Private sector at Omar Hospital, Lahore, Pakistan.

DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION OR DBS PROCEDURE-:

DBS surgery involves putting the tip of a hair-thin wire inside the brain in a special area that controls movement. The patient is awake during surgery to allow the surgical team to assess the patient’s brain functions. The small wire runs up through a small hole in the skull and under the scalp, down to a small device implanted under the collarbone. Local anesthetic is applied to these areas, and the patient is occasionally sedated.

While the electrode is being advanced through the brain, the patient does not feel any pain. Most patients have two implants — one on each side of the brain.

Steps of Procedure-:

  • Patient Evaluation by Neurophysician
  • Patient eligibility for DBS by ANFN team
  • Hospital admission

Surgical Steps

  • Pre op imaging
  • Appilication of stereotatic frame
  • Imaging with frame
  • Surgical planning and localization of target radiologically
  • Burr hole under local analgesia
  • Physiological confirmation of target by MER
  • Implantation of electrodes in brain
  • Implantation of battery (IPG) infront of chest
  • Programming of DBS to obtain best results

HOW DBS or DEEP BRAIN STIMULATION WORKS ? 

Deep brain stimulation (DBS), or Electric subcortical stimulation, illustrates functional Neurosurgical intervention with Stereotactic placement of Electrodes into Target brain regions. Propagating from an external stimulation device, which becomes internalized via subdermal implantation, Electric impulses traverse the electrodes, stimulating the desired target and invoking therapeutic responses within the patient giving Miraculous cure from all the diseases listed above. Whole procedure is performed in awake patient and they are discharged the next day.

 

Coma Treatment with DBS Surgery Prof Shahzad Shams

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.

Prof Shahzad Shams is one of the Pioneers of DBS Deep Brain Stimulation surgery for Coma in Pakistan and is referred cases from abroad also. He is the first in Pakistan to start DBS surgery in the Private sector at Omar Hospital, Lahore, Pakistan.

Dystonia Treatment with DBS Surgery Prof Shahzad Shams

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.

DBS Deep Brain Stimulation Surgery Pakistan

  • 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.

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
