Successful surgeries counter Parkinson's

Update: April, 14/2012 - 09:16

HCM CITY — Surgeons at Nguyen Tri Phuong Hospital in HCM City conducted successful surgeries on two patients suffering from Parkinson's Disease on Wednesday and Thursday.

Vietnamese and French doctors collaborated on the nine-hour operations which were the first Parkinson's Disease surgicial techniques to be applied in Viet Nam.

The surgeons attached electrodes inside the patient's bodies and linked the lines with batteries which discharge pulses. The batteries were placed under the skin on the patient's chests to monitor the movement of their bodies.

Over the next few days, the patient's movements will be monitored and soon after the internal electrodes will officially begin to operate. — VNS
