A 34-year-old Sudanese man who had been afflicted with Wilson’s illness for nine years underwent Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Surgery under the supervision of MGM Healthcare and recovered completely. The patient made a full recovery in two weeks, and all of his problems significantly improved.
All four of MAHAMAD DAR’s (NAME CHANGED) limbs have been affected by tremors, making it difficult for him to move, speak, or swallow. Wilson’s disease (WD), a hereditary disorder of copper metabolism that causes aberrant copper accumulation in a variety of organs including the brain, eyes, and liver, was the diagnosis made by the medical professionals at MGM Healthcare.
In this clinical situation of Wilson’s disease, the team chose to employ a Thalamic target for the procedure—something that has very occasionally been done.
Deep brain stimulation is a cutting-edge, technologically advanced surgical method that can enhance patients’ quality of life, according to Dr. K Sridhar, Director and Group Head Institute of Neurosciences and Spinal Disorders, MGM Healthcare. To choose the proper target to stimulate in the brain, it is crucial to completely comprehend the patient’s problem. When properly carried out with all required protocols, it is safe. We are pleased with Mr. Abdur Ghafar’s progress and that the procedure enabled him to stand up and walk.
Due to the lesioning effect, the patient showed good clinical improvement right away after surgery. Two weeks later, the stimulator was configured to produce the proper stimulation, and as a result, the patient’s condition significantly improved. He can walk without much assistance now that his tremors have lessened, although he still has modest proximal tremors in his right hand.
