The first surgery of the State Institute of the Brain was a success and will increase the quality of life of the retiree Paulo Nogueira Roberto Quintanilla, 62. Resident of Cabo Frio and the bearer of Parkinson's disease, it was submitted on Thursday (1) to a thalamotomy, complex surgery and unprecedented public service. The procedure was performed by the director of neurosurgery unit, Paulo Niemeyer Filho, and will end after three years, the tremor in the right arm of the patient. Paul goes well and should be discharged later on Friday (2)

"I had a normal life. Liked to fish, go out, always worked hard, even after retirement. Tremors began lightly and were gradually increasing. That got me no self-esteem, made me stop to realize my activities. With surgery, I hope to go fishing, working, doing what I like without letting anyone worried about my family. Institute Brain made me have hope in those better days and I am very grateful to those involved said Paul.

Until I met Paul Niemeyer, the patient was evaluated by six neurologists. Once the outpatient care began to be conducted at the Institute, Paul, who was already being treated in the Emergency Department (UPA) Cabo Frio, was called in for a consultation unit. His wife, a retired Marise Quintanilla says that the remedies that were prescribed by doctors surtiam effect in a very short space of time and that when Paul saw the possibility of surgery, he was afraid, but accepted the challenge.
