DBS Stories

About 11 yrs back, I was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease. I was left with no hope regarding my health and career. Then one day I came across one advertisement in the Times of India regarding the camp organized at Jaslok Hospital on World Parkinson’s day. Exactly four months back i.e. on 04th June, I had undergone the DBS (Deep Brain Stimulation) surgery. 

On the day of the camp, Dr. Paresh Doshi of Jaslok Hospital, and his team tried their best to convince a common man like me about the DBS. 

I must appreciate the efforts of Dr. Raghvendra Ramdasi who explained the minute details of DBS.  

It is not just a question of convincing; it is their efforts that helped me in managing the disease.

I must appreciate the staff and the nurses at Jaslok Hospital for their selflessness, compassion and empathy towards the patients.

Last but not least, I give my regards to Dr. Nikhil, Dr. Shiva, and Ms. Bharti. It is because of the successful surgery that now, I am working very efficiently and competitively, and enjoying my new life gifted to be with DBS surgery. I am now more confident to step out in the world and make my family proud, and the credit for all this goes to Dr. Doshi and his dedicated team.
