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.
