Weather of Arabia - Medical teams specialized in neurosurgery and psychiatrists at King Salman Medical City in Madinah have succeeded in relieving the suffering of a patient from chronic depression, accompanied by more than 25 years of surgical intervention to alleviate his severe symptoms and accompanying anxiety.

 

A medical team consisting of psychiatrists and neurosurgeons was formed to discuss the case and approve a surgical intervention to relieve severe symptoms of depression and anxiety associated with it.

 

The team performed a "bilateral anterior gyrus resection" under full anesthesia, which was successful without any complications. The patient's mood and psychological condition improved, sleep hours returned to normal, and he moved away from permanent sadness and excessive thinking about death and anxiety about the future.

 

It is noteworthy that King Salman Medical City in Madinah provides a neurosurgery service for depression patients, through a medical team in neurosurgery, by surgical intervention in the brain using advanced and precise surgical techniques to relieve symptoms of depression, and this service is the only one of its kind in the Middle East.
