Tourette’s – Deep Brain Stimulation

Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) is an exciting medical development which has helped thousands of people worldwide. It uses leading edge technology and advanced surgical techniques to change the way electrical signals flow through the brain. In doing so, it offers an opportunity to reduce the effects of debilitating conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, essential tremor, dystonia, Tourette’s syndrome, and more recently even depression and obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD).
Precision Health Solutions is a group of specialist health providers, specifically dealing with conditions of the brain and spine. Precision Neurosurgery and Professor Richard Bittar have a strong focus on Deep Brain Stimulation. Similarly, Dr Richard Peppard from Precision Neurology has a wealth of experience and skill in the diagnosis and treatment of movement disorders, and particularly in deep brain stimulation. Our psychologists at Precision Psychology assist in the assessment of potential DBS candidates, and will help to shepherd you through the process.
Deep brain stimulation offers hope to many, but before a person can head down this path there are some important questions they will need to ask. The aim of this website is to provide relevant and up to date information about DBS and the conditions it can be used to treat. Our highly-trained specialists are also available to assist you on your journey. At Precision you’re not just a patient- you’re someone we care about.
