Bipolar Disorder – Health News –

A small study suggests that deep brain stimulation, which is currently being investigated as a treatment for general depression, may also help patients with bipolar disorder.

There are some caveats. The surgery necessary to allow deep brain stimulation is extremely expensive. And for now, the research is preliminary, so it’s too early to know for sure if the treatment is appropriate to be used for any kind of depression.
