What is B.E.A.M Surgery – Why it Works

This procedure consists in blocking 100% of the production of Adrenaline from its source, and 20% of Nor-adrenaline from the adrenal marrow. Now the synthesis of dopamine will have a new regulation; a new biochemical blueprint, and a new system of signals that causes for the shaking in Parkinson’s patients to disappear from the beginning, and the symptoms from schizophrenic patients to be eliminated.


This procedure was created by Ecuadorean Psychiatrist, Dr Jose Mackliff Hidalgo, after more than 30 years of research, and is now considered to be the most permanent solution to Parkinson and Schizophrenia available to date. The surgery consists of electrically burning the marrow in the narrow channel of the adrenal medullas which lie above the two kidneys in the body.

At the beginning of the decade of the 70’s, it was discovered that by increasing glucose, the aggressiveness in psychotic patients decreased. By 1974 Dr. Mackliff reviewed the results from a study by Hubell Von Vallet & Dell, in which the therapeutic effects of a drug called Clorpromazine on mental patients, were due precisely by inhibiting brain adrenaline.

By blocking the tissue in the suprarenal glands through the BEAM surgery, 100% of adrenaline, and 20% of noradrenaline, are also blocked in the blood stream and the symptoms in Parkinson and Schizophrenia disappear. Then in the brain, the glia and the hypothalamus detect the lack of these substances and their metabolisms are detected, and therefore, they take on the role of neuro-endocrine brain regulators, and start generating a new modal system, a new plasticity to the Tyrosine chain; thus regulating the functions of Dopamine, Noradrenaline, and other neurotransmitters that communicate with these neurons. In this way, Dopamine will be available in parts of the brain where it is only needed as in the “substantia nigra” in the case of Parkinson; and won’t be released in areas where it exists in excess, as in the “limbic zone” in the case of schizophrenia.

Why it Works

These were the results from the initial B.E.A.M surgeries done on dogs that had undergone drug-induced psychosis. Continuation of the positive results were studied over a year’s time before operating on a human being for the first time in 2006.

When the Suprarenal Adrenaline disappears from the blood stream, the Tyrosine cycle that controls blood sugar levels increases. This regulates an adequate quantity of dopa and dopamine that is permanent. Since an excess of dopamine in the limbic area of the brain is the cause of the drug-induced psychosis, this assured the elimination of the symptoms of psychosis in the dogs. These positive results continued for a year’s time, the duration of the study. The dogs were then autopsied to prove that the chemical changes in the blood and brain had occurred and had been maintained.

Who has the BEAM Surgery

Most Ecuadorian and foreign patients seeking operations have chronic illness, with more than ten years of schizophrenia or Parkinson and a long history of hospitalization in the first. These patients with the help of antipsychotics and B.E.A.M have obtained a formidable elimination of positive and negative symptoms, as well as a better quality of life that is not possible with antipsychotics alone.

In Dr. Mackliff’s experience, patients with one to three years of schizophrenia (between 14 and 18) experience a spectacular improvement in about 3-6 months after the operation. These cases correspond to 10% of the cases submitted to B.E.A.M, since most come to be operated when they are fully impaired, however they too obtain the elimination of symptoms.

Every case that has undergone B.E.A.M is unique and the patients live in homes with features and different environments which can impact positively or negatively on the operated patient.


It is interesting to note that the pharmaceutical industry spends billions $ on research on anti-depressant and antipsychotic drugs, and has virtually nothing to show for it. It has all been spent on useless studies designed to minimize the adverse effects of the drugs and the cerebral changes that result from their long term use.

Dr Mackliff has self-funded his entire research for 30 years and now has 82 successful surgeries on people with chronic schizophrenia since 2007. He presented his work and a case study of Sergio to the World – Neuro Talks in 2015 in Hangzhou, China with positive responses and results which will lead to formalizing the research into BEAM in the future.
