First time in Asia that DBS implantation was performed with a medical robot called ROSA in Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences (AIMS). The technology enables minimally invasive surgery of the central nervous system with a level of precision not possible by human hand. A 45-year-old suffering from the degenerative disorder got a second life after undergoing Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) implantation. 

“DBS has provided therapeutic benefits for treatment-resistant disorders like Parkinson’s, epilepsy, movement disorders, chronic pain, depression and obsessive-compulsive disorders,” said Dr. Ashok Pillai, Clinical Professor, Neurosurgery Department at Amrita Hospital.
