Parkinson's disease (PD) and dystonia are common indications for the deep brain stimulation (DBS) procedure. It is very important to be diligent about target localization and execution of the procedure. The single most important predictor of a good postoperative outcome is proper patient selection. The various steps of performing DBS include taking a preoperative non - stereotactic MRI, stereotactic frame fixation, fusion of MRI with stereotactic CT scan images, planning of the target and trajectory, lead placement at target through the planned trajectory, implantation of pulse generator/ battery and programming of the implanted device. Utmost care and precision are required to execute the procedure, which decide the final outcome of the surgical procedure.
