Pioneering depression op

25th January 2011

A surgical team have developed a new form of surgery which could give hope to patients with severe depression.

Surgeons at the Frenchay Hospital in Bristol are treating patients by planting electrodes in the skull to stimulate their brains. They are in the process of carrying out a trial on eight patients to find out the difference in stimulating two separate areas of the brain. Results from all the participants are due to be published later in 2011.
