I would like to find out more about DBS. Anyone who has had this surgery done, please let me know the effects of it and has it helped. My husband has had PD for over 30 years. We were wondering if this could help him. He takes Stalevo every 3 hours and takes Carb/Levo 25/100 when needed to extend the medication. He sleeps quite a bit during the day and a little at night. Please give me the pros and cons of this surgery. Thank you.

Do a search on Ask the Doctor and on the Surgical forum. lots of info in both places.
Lots of pros and cons, there is a booklet you can download on the website also. They recommended it for my wife, then changed their mind, glad they did.
