Introduction: Advanced PD stimulation of the STN reduces tremor, rigidity, and bradykinesia. Due to hemorrhagic complications the use of micro electrode recordings during DBS operation was still questioning for some of surgeons. But use micro electrodes were still the best choice for the positioning during surgery of DBS. Aim: The aim of the current study was to investigate the effect transformation of the micro electrode recording data to fast fourier transform for the main target nucleus determination. This process needs a multidisciplinary approach from neurosurgery, neurology and specialists on electrophysiology such as biophysics. Case report: We present the case of a 63 year-old male with medically intractable PD is focused on behalf of the surgical treatment. Patient had a 4-year history of progressively severe hand tremor on right side. The patient was successfully treated unilaterally with the STN DBS.
