Yes it is being performed in several countries for Parkinson's including the UK, believe it or not!

I saw a trial conducted in Canada for really treatment resistant patients.

So it is out there, not cheap though.

Good luck to your friend!

I'd deffinetly consider it, although I don't see how I could afford to have it done

I believe is is already being used for depression, with mixed results, but it is being studied for other applications, like Anxiety and ADD?

I don't see why. That is, unless he hasn't tried medications thoroughly. Many substance users are just trying to adress underlying mood disorders.

Tom,

They were supposed to be doing trials of DBS in Bristol Setpember (now) but according to somebody who I've been writing to who was registered for the trial they've cancelled it! Whaddya know???

I imagine the person who was down to have it is gutted as he's tried pretty much everything under the sun.

So nice of them to get everyone's hopes up only to dash them at the last minute. Probably to do with funding, the Goverment too busy wasting money on the NHS or war!
