Chandigarh, May 10: AI based deep brain stimulation (DBS) surgery on a Parkinson's patient was performed for the first time at Ivy Hospital, Mohali recently.

Talking to media here on Friday,  DrJaslovleen Kaur Sidhu, consultant neurology at Ivy said that a 65 years old male patient with tremors from the last 10 years has undergone successful DBS .

The patient was taking multiple doses of levodopa and other medications. The surgery went successful and, after two sessions of programming his tremors have reduced down by 90%, informed Dr Jaslovleen.

With this Ivy has become 's 1st hospital to do AI based DBS surgery for Parkinson's patients and till now we have conducted 5 such cases in the last 2 months, she said.

She further said ,” This AI based brain sense can record the brain signals responsible for Parkinson's disease symptoms or side effects, even when the patient is at home or doing his routine activities. This helps the treating doctor in delivering personalized, data-driven treatment as per the patients' needs.”

Till now patients from tricity used to travel to Delhi, Mumbai or Bangalore to get DBS surgeries done, now this procedure is being done routinely at Ivy , said Dr Jaspreet Singh Randhwa, consultant neuro surgery at Ivy.

He said that DBS surgery is like a pacemaker surgery for the brain which can control the symptoms by changing the electrical signals of the electrodes placed in the brain. Patients who need DBS surgery have to be screened by a Parkinson's specialist neurologist and have to undergo UPDRS on & off testing before they can be declared fit for surgery, he asserted.

Also, since this is an awake surgery, Parkinson's specialists have to monitor the patient during the whole surgery to confirm if the electrodes are put in the exact location in the brain, Dr Randhwa maintained.
