Parkinson's Disease Treatment With Deep Brain Stimulation Surgery(DBS)

Movement disorders such as Parkinson’s disease (PD), Dystonia and Essential Tremor are considered progressive diseases, which means that symptoms get worse over time. Although there is no standard treatment for these diseases, neurologists treat each person based on their own symptoms.

Treatments start with medication and continue to surgical therapy. Other treatments include lifestyle modifications, like resting, exercising and managing patients dietary habits.

There are many medications available to treat Parkinson’s (PD) symptoms, although none yet that reverse the effects of the disease. It is common for people with PD to take a variety of these medications — all at different doses and at different times of day — to manage their unique symptoms.

Nowadays you are expected to keep track of your medications which can be a challenging task, understanding your medications and sticking to a schedule will provide the greatest benefit from the drugs and avoid unpleasant “off” periods due to missed doses.
