  • Audiobook • 2 hrs 2 min

The aim of this book is to describe the various types of surgical treatment that can be utilized to reduce Parkinson’s disease (PD) symptoms in a subset of carefully selected individuals with a specific symptom or symptoms. This book will focus on the following potential therapies: deep brain stimulation (DBS), duopa therapy, lesion therapy, focused ultrasound.

This book was designed as a practical guide to explain the complete process required for people with Parkinson’s and families considering surgical therapy. The content describes everything from the decision to have surgery, and the day of surgery, to surgical recovery. While the information contained in this book is intended to facilitate a discussion of surgical options with family, friends and healthcare team members, it is not meant to replace the advice of expert healthcare professionals involved in your care.

This book has been made possible through generous Parkinson’s Foundation donors and a grant from Abbott.
