Parkinson's disease (PD) is a neuro degenerative brain disorder that progress slowly in older people. Most people's symptoms take years to develop, and they live for years with the disease. Currently there is no cure for Parkinson's disease, but medication and therapy is used to treat its symptoms. Deep brain stimulation (DBS) is a surgical therapy used for the treatment of Parkinson Disease. Because deep brain stimulation implantations and other stereotactic and functional surgical procedures require accurate, precise, and safe targeting of the brain structure, the technical aids for pre-operative planning, intervention, and post-operative follow up have become increasingly important. This paper presents a conceptual model of the Customized Surgical Guide for Parkinson’s disease.
