Description Deep brain stimulation (DBS) of basal ganglia has become a frequently performed surgery in patients with advanced Parkinson’s disease. Throughout the years, this technique has reached advances in imaging techniques, neurophysiological recording possibilities, and in hardware and software technology. Nevertheless, to reach optimal results of DBS therapy, a number of aspects must be carefully considered. In current paper, overview of DBS procedure is provided with special focus on complications of this, an even so ever more promising therapeutic approach.
