In brief: It can be

There is increasing evidence (mostly out of Europe) that DBS can help many people with tardive dyskinesia.

In brief: Yes but with Risks

One of the more interesting treatments currently being explored for tardive dyskinesia (td) is known as "deep brain stimulation" (dbs).
This method of treating neurological and movement disorders was first approved by the food and drug administration in 1997. Since then, it has proven to have great benefits, but equally serious risks.
