I had DBS surgery at Toronto Western Hospital, Helen Mayberg held my hand when I had a panic attack as they screwed the stereotactic frame onto my skull. This was about about 5 years ago. The procedure got rid of the really bad "pain" of depression, that pain that escapes description, but cripples and ends lives. I was able to go back to work and function in society again. The procedure did not get rid of depression however, it just very noticeably made it less "painful".
