Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a widely employed therapeutic modality for the treatment of movement disorders. Full FDA approval or humanitarian device exemption has been made for Parkinson's disease, tremor, and dystonia. In this review, we describe the indications and selection criteria, target selection, and outcomes for each of these conditions. In addition, we describe the operative techniques utilized in DBS surgery and look forward to new developments in DBS on the horizon.
