Hello. Yes there are surgeries available for intractable OCD. However, all modes of treatment should have been tried. There are some neurosurgeons who perform limbic leukotomy. It can help but may have some significant side effects.
Next Steps
Talk to your psychiatrist about further options and he/ she will guide you.

Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) is highly effective when it comes to OCD symptoms. Usually it's the thought patterns that become distorted that heightens the anxiety. When these patterns are identified and restructured, the anxiety goes down and with it goes the OCD symptoms.
Next Steps
Consult an experienced CBT specialist.
Health Tips
Medicines help curb down the symptoms, but to reduce the anxiety from the root, we need to work on our thought patterns.
