Tourette Syndrome Controlled by Deep Brain Stimulation Procedure

Tourette Syndrome Controlled by Deep Brain Stimulation Procedure


I get a lot of motor skill tics
where it’s hard to walk sometimes. Sometimes it’s hard to even function
because my arms lock up and when I get a tick I get a lot of neck movements
where I’ll constantly lift my shoulder, which causes neck pain a lot of times. I came across the documentary when I was trying to look for other patients who have been through this situation, and
although the documentary involved a Parkinson’s patient, I knew it was the
same type of surgery, so I wanted to look and see exactly what was going to happen. We’ll make a small little opening in the
bone and then we’re going to pass these tiny electrodes down into the brain, okay? How do you feel, do you feel sleepy? It feels great, not thrashing around all over the bed, and I love not having to move every few seconds. Between having the surgeons I had, the service here,
nurses and everything, it’s overall a pretty good experience
