Best Neurosurgeon for Coma with DBS Surgery
Patients developing Coma after Head Injury or Hypoxemic brain injury have responded brilliantly to DBS Deep Brain Stimulation surgery in which external current is given to the brain through the external battery which brings these patients back into this world. DBS Deep Brain Stimulation provides the external current to the brain to provide a decrease in current which occurred due to damage to the brain because of Head Injury or Hypoxemic brain damage secondary to CPR or Anesthesia.
Prof Shahzad Shams is one of the Pioneers of DBS Deep Brain Stimulation surgery for Coma in Pakistan and is referred to cases from abroad also. He is the first in Pakistan to start DBS surgery in the Private sector at Omar Hospital, Lahore, Pakistan.
He is the best neurosurgeon for DBS Deep Brain Stimulation Surgery for Coma in Pakistan and Asia.

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 Neuro physician
- Patient eligibility for DBS by ANFN team
- Hospital admission
- Pre-op imaging
- Application of stereotactic 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 the brain
- Implantation of battery (IPG) in front of the chest
- Programming of DBS to obtain best results
How does DBS Or Deep Brain Stimulation Work?
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. The whole procedure is performed in awake patient and they are discharged the next day.
