In brief: Not FDA approved
There is increasing evidence that deep brain stimulation targeting the globus pallidus is effective for tardive disorders but this is not officially an fda approved indication.
If it is disabling, you can consult a functional neurosurgeon.

In brief: Experimental
Deep brain stimulation surgery is being studied with some promising early data.
It is not yet routinely done, but an academic medical center with an active functional neurosurgery program would be the most likely place to find out more.
