Microelectrode Recordings (MERs) It would appear obvious that there is a great diversity in surgical approaches to Deep Brain Stimulation (DBS) lead implantation. In the near mathematical impossibility of randomized control trials that pits each different approach against the others, how is one to decide which approach or method is best? These newsletters have argued that even in the absence of Evidence Based Medicine (EBM), the surgeon still has the responsibility of doing what is reasonabl... Read More
