Portrayal of Psychiatric DBS in the popular press

An interesting piece titled Brain surgery saved my husband from the torment of depression on DBS for major depression in a patient in Oxford; read it here. This is an example of a rather carefully written article, not selling DBS as a miracle cure. The case has been published 2 years ago in J Neurosurg (PMID: 19284230).

Worthwhile reading.
