Book description

Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is now a firmly established treatment for movement disorders, and an increasing body of evidence supports DBS in the treatment of other neurological and psychiatric disorders. This essential reference guide outlines a practical approach to the use of this paradigm-shifting therapy and covers key aspects of DBS practice. Chapters describe how to implement a DBS program and select appropriate patients, device programming to achieve optimal symptom control, and long-term management of patients. Thoroughly revised, this third edition includes additional chapters on managing patients with emerging applications of DBS. An entire chapter is dedicated to troubleshooting common problems with the therapy as many 'failures' are preventable and addressable. With contributions from experts in the field, this is a must-have reference guide for any clinician working with DBS patients.


‘This book serves as a fantastic guide for anyone interested in managing DBS. The writing is concise yet effective, extremely thorough, and easy to read. After reading this book, I feel well versed in the field, and I especially enjoyed learning about the principles of neurostimulation, fundamentals in programming the device, and patients best suited for DBS.’
