Deep brain stimulation is a neuromodulation technique used by specialists to treat a wide range of movement disorders, including Parkinson's disease and tremor. It involves the use of very small wires (electrodes) that deliver high-frequency electrical stimulation to affected parts of the brain. The electrodes are attached to a small electrical device that sends out pulses similar to a pacemaker.
Septoplasty is surgery to correct a deviated nasal septum. The septum is the structure that divides the nostrils in the middle of the inside of the nose. If the nasal septum is crooked, it can make the nose feel blocked continuously, leading to problems exercising, sleeping, eating, and speaking.

In a diagnostic laparoscopy, a consultant will use keyhole surgery to inspect the organs in your abdomen.
Dorsal root ganglions are bundles of nerves in the spine that transmit sensory and pain signals to the brain. Dorsal root ganglion stimulation(DRGS) involves placing tiny wires called electrodes near these nerve bundles. The electrodes are connected to an electrical device, or ‘pulse generator’, that sends out electrical impulses to alter pain signals to the brain.
The brain and muscles communicate with each other using chemical messengers called neurotransmitters. When this relay system works properly, the body is able to initiate and co-ordinate movements. Some medications (drugs) interfere with the function of neurotransmitters and can lead to problems, resulting in an involuntary movement disorder.
The duodenal switch is the most drastic of all forms of bariatric surgery. It is often done in the most obese patients as the second operation in a two-stage procedure. The first stage is a sleeve gastrectomy.
Specific treatment depends on whether the duodenal ulcer is caused by the bacteria, the painkillers or a combination of both.
