Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is an expanding field within neurosurgery. With many neurosurgeons performing relatively small numbers of these procedures, detailed descriptions of the technical aspects and nuances of DBS may be worthwhile. We describe our technique for DBS, based on over 300 procedures. This methodology continues to evolve and is refined according to our own experience, our observations of others, technological innovations, and information derived from the neurosurgical literature. The indications for DBS in our service are outlined, the anatomical targets described, and the anaesthetic and surgical aspects detailed.
