There is no report in the English literature on the criteria for neuroablation or neuroaugmentation for the treatment of Parkinson’s disease in a developing country like Malaysia. A prospective study of patients with Parkinson’s disease from the north-eastern peninsular Malaysia was done to assess their suitability of surgery. Age, race, duration of illness and dementia were considered important factors towards the success of such surgical procedures. A mathematical model is suggested for future cases deemed to be suitable for neuroaugmentative or ablative surgery.
