Former AFL player, Mark Mikan was diagnosed with Parkinson’s disease in 2016. Until recently, he experienced debilitating tremors in his hands and feet. His symptoms have been greatly reduced since undergoing brain surgery. Find out about the operation using the latest in deep brain stimulation technology.

A new surgical technique lead by neurosurgeon Girish Nair is having a remarkable impact on the symptoms of Parkinson’s disease. The new and improved deep brain stimulation therapy uses 3D printed equipment that is fitted to the patients head. This results in a faster, more accurate and ultimately less intimidating operation for the patient. Previously any patient undergoing deep brain stimulation would be secured to an operating table with a cumbersome head frame. They were often kept awake for the operation which lasted many hours making the treatment almost intolerable.

In a world first, stem cells have been injected into the brain of a Parkinson’s disease sufferer as part of an experimental treatment in Melbourne.
