Different disorders of brain function result in different diseases. Most of them used to be treated only medically. Recently there have been advances in treatment allowing for a role for brain surgery to treat some of these disorders effectively. That includes a new procedure offered at Baystate Medical Center called Deep Brain Stimulation. This surgical treatment can reduce tremors and block involuntary movements in people with movement disorders. The results are amazing, and this procedure has never been offered in this region before. It is a major advancement for eligible patients with debilitating conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, essential tremors, and dystonia. Many other potential applications include epilepsy, chronic pain, depression, Alzheimer’s disease, obesity and addiction.
