Electrodes are also located deep in the brain and are connected to a battery device or stimulator. This pacemaker is similar to heart pacemaker as neurostimulators use electric impulses to assist in regulating brain activity.

A DBS system has 3 parts that get implanted inside the body:

  • Neurostimulator
  • Lead
  • Extension

A handheld controller is given to the patient for turning the system on and off. The doctor uses a wireless device for programming the stimulator. Depending on the patient's condition, the settings of stimulator can be adjusted. DBS has proved to be very effective procedure for relieving above symptoms.
