Mgm healthcare doctors perform rare deep brain stimulation surgery on a Sudanese Patient with congenital disease walks after 9 years

MGM Healthcare has successfully performed a Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) Surgery on a 34- year-old man from Sudan who had been suffering from Wilson’s disease for nine years. The patient recovered well in two weeks with good improvement in all his symptoms.

Abdur Ghafar (Name Changed) has been symptomatic with tremors in all four limbs facing difficulty in walking, speaking, and swallowing food. The doctors at MGM Healthcare, upon diagnosis, found him to be suffering from Wilson’s disease (WD), a genetic illness of copper metabolism leading to abnormal copper accumulation in various organs, including the Brain, eyes, and liver.

A multi-disciplinary team comprising of Dr. Sridhar, Director and Group Head Institute of Neurosciences and Spinal Disorders, MGM Healthcare, the Neurologists, the rehabilitation specialists, and the Neurosurgical team apprised the family of the “Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS)” to symptomatically address his symptoms, which were the root cause of Abdur Ghafar problems. The team decided to use a Thalamic target for the procedure – something that has been done rarely in this clinical setting of Wilson’s disease.

“Deep Brain Stimulation is a modern, technology-driven surgical procedure that can improve the quality of life of patients. It is important to carefully understand the patient’s problem to decide on the appropriate target to stimulate the Brain. It is safe when properly done with all due protocols. We are happy that Mr. Abdur Ghafar has improved and that the surgery has allowed him to get out of the wheelchair and walk.”

The patient showed a good clinical improvement immediately post-surgery due to the lesioning effect, and two weeks later, the stimulator was programmed to deliver appropriate stimulation, following which there was a significant improvement. His tremors improved, and he is able to ambulate with minimal to no support, though he continued to have mild proximal tremors in his right hand.
